Conclusion

The main conclusion we can draw from today’s tests is that it is possible to use old cooling systems on the new Socket AM2 platform. The smartly designed fastening mechanism makes the Vantec Stingray STG-100 compatible with new AMD processors. Moreover, the high efficiency this liquid-cooling system has showed on the new platform is indicative of its high quality and big reserve of performance which is not exhausted even today. Here are the pros and cons of this cooling solution in brief:

Highs:

  • Includes four water-blocks for the hottest components of your computer system
  • Simple to assemble and install
  • Universal design, compatible with all modern CPU types
  • High performance and low noise level
  • Compact
  • Stylish exterior

Lows:

  • Cannot cool the memory chips on the graphics card
  • Large water-blocks for the mainboard’s chipset
  • Lacks any protection against bending of the pipes
