Default Vantec Aeroflow, TT TR2-M1, TT TR2-M2 compared.

Prices including shiipping.
TR2-M1 $13
TR2-M2 $15
Aeroflow $23

Test system:
Abit KT7-Raid, 1600+ Palomino overclocked and over voltaged to 1760MHz @
1.85vcore. This is the hottest cpu I have.

The M1 and M2 aren't really that close to each other in design, The M1 HS
is wider and has an 80x25mm fan. The M2 and Aeroflow have the same YS Tech
TMD fan 70x15mm 36cfm.

Idle temps
Cooler MB CPU Fan Diff. Noise
TR2-M1 26.5 44.8` 2800 18.3 Low
TR2-M2 27.4 51.3 3200 23.4 Low
TR2-M2 27.5 46.7 4500 19.2 Low
TR2-M2 27.4 44.2 5600 16.8 Med
Aeroflow 27.0 40.8 5600 13.8 Med

Load temps
TR2-M1 26.7 50.4 2800 23.7 Low
TR2-M2 27.8 66.8 3200 39.0 Low
TR2-M2 27.8 54.9 4500 27.1 Low
TR2-M2 27.9 51.3 5600 23.4 Med
Aeroflow 27.4 45.5 5600 18.1 Med

Notes
I had already removed, lapped, and reinstalled the cooper block on the M1.
Nothing was done to the others, except the fan burned out on the Aeroflow
and I used the same TMD for both the Aeroflow and M2 test.

Conclusion
I was a little surpised, but the Aeroflow is a pretty clear winner here.
However, I think replacing the slow very quiet fan on the M1 may have
actually brought it close to the Aeroflow. I was a little disappointed in
the performance of the M2. I had expected better from all the reviews I've
read. Still, any one of these should provide a very suitable cooler for
any of the XP cpu's. On a stock 2100+ Tbred B core running 1733MHz @ 1.60v
vcore, they all kept idle temps in low 30's and in the low 40's under
load. So take your pick.:-)

As per your suggestion I bought the TR2-M2 with a 2100+B core about two
weeks ago. At the time you had a TR2-M1 and felt the M2 would be a good way
to go. Well , I agree!
I am very happy with the TR2-M2. I am running the 2100+ at 2100MHZ. With the
fan on medium (about 4300rpm) I have a MB temp of 27, CPU idle 33 and CPU
load 45 with a room temp of 23. I don't even hear it compared to the case
fans. Thanks again for helping me make the decision to go with this combo.

Actually, It's a review of the TR2-M4. Compared to a Coolermaster. I
didn't see any of the ones I tested in the review. It does look Like the
M4 is an M1 with a blower fan though., but I really don't see what this
has to do with my little comparison.

What is your point???? Wes was not even talking about TR2-M4. He was
comparing M1 and M2.
