Would you like to find out what your temperature should be if you were to purchase one of our cooling solutions? Well we've written a program to help you with that.
The Arqtik Temperature Calculator has just been released and it can give you a rough idea of what your average core temperatures should be. Keep in mind that it is not exact and makes assumptions based on the information provided. It is only capable of giving you a gauge on what your temperatures should be, based on what temperatures you're able to achieve on your current cooling.
It can only compare a 1:1 clock rate. This means; if you were to achieve an overclock of 4600GHz, then this calculator is able to determine what the temperature should be. If you want to know what temperatures would be at 5GHz, you'll need the temperature information based on a 5GHz overclock.
It is also, has no implementation of the dew point protection. This was to give you an idea of how powerful the cooler actually is. In the future, additions will made to help achieve predictions of clock rates you have not achieved, but for now, you'll have stick with what you're able to do now on your current water cooling setup.Download: Arqtik Cooler Calculator
The program is operated in such a manner:
1) Choose your CPU brand. The list of CPUs is large, dating back to LGA775 and as up to date as to include LGA2011. Also includes AMD's AM2+, AM3, and AM3+ CPUs.
2) Enter your CPU configuration. If your CPU is stock, fill out the Overclock section the same as you did with the stock section. If your CPU is overclocked, fill out the Overclock section with the correct information
3) Select the cooler you're curious about. There is no notification available if the CPU is too powerful for the cooler. Only skyrocketing CPU temperatures.
4) If you are not sure if you water cooling is enough to get rid of the heat involved, you have the ability to see what 2 extra radiators would do for it.
5) Hit calculate and you will get results that will tell you, the room temperature, water temperature of your loop, temperature of the block or cold water connected to your CPU, and the CPU core temperatures themselves. In Addition you will also get information on how much power is being drawn by the cooler and how much heat your cooling will have to get rid of.
