Arctic Z1 Gen 3 Review

The Z1 was a simple install and setup and works very nicely, the hub is simple but sleek and in all reality, Arctic did a great job.

Recommended Posts


That's a badass avatar and g777 is a great guy I have bought tons of gear from him :)

I would join you for ocing but I really need to hunt down 2 360 or 480 that are no taller then 124mm Daz sells them but scared of talking to my wife about buying computer gear hahahha

The part with your wife is really scary . I am in the same boat , plus i have to find a cheaper place to buy LN2 . 3$/L kills me any time when i fill up . Hopefully in the winter i will try to practice more

Dead Things -

Ha ha, that 8088 got pwned! :o

Almost :) However any attempt to validate by CPU-Z is tiresome at best:http://youtube.com/watch?v=IsA0UtOXP_o

But I working my arse off on fixing this as well, as I can - keaboard controller mod - now it use own crystal, so it should not be dependent on the FSB clock. There you have few preliminary pics of the replacement:

the bigger blobs of tin on few of the lefgs (too big holes, tin get thru) will be fixed later :)

BTW, I think I know how to do BSEL = 0 on the board. The BSEL = 1 is triggered by connecting 10k resistor to +Vcc (3.5V). Disconecting it, soldering it into one leg, up into the air and connecting the high leg with ground force the BSEL = 0, according to this PDF guide:http://web.archive.org/web/20000919074447/http://www.icst.com/pdf/9169c-27.pdf

The BSEL = 0 thing will mean that the PCI clock will be locked at 32MHz regardless of FSB, except the 7.14MHz "thing" :) That should help a lot for overclocking!

With new GFX card (ATI Rage XL PCI) the display is fixed at 7.14MHz FSB:

With the latest CPU-Z beta I get the validation of 10.7MHz: http://valid.x86.fr/1qbfwjso I submit the lowest CPU-Z score on HWbot: http://hwbot.org/submission/2987009_


Also I manage the Aquamark lowest score 2: http://hwbot.org/submission/2980283_ Witch is also unbeatable. Took me 3 days short of one MONTH ;D ;)

So to put long story short, I would once again stress that it might be worth that some of you, guys, who have quite powerfull hardware, could step it and just for the Teamcup 2015 join again HWC team on HWbot and try do some good scores ;) Just for few days - ending 30.9.2015.

The low scores I have pretty much covered (only the AMD lowest clock slipped out of my grasp, because I lack AMD K6 3+, witch have a software multiplier control, so I could set the 7.14MHz FSB to x2 multi, giving me a 14.28MHz - and hard to beat low clock score ;) ), but some fast scores could be helpfull to do.

Pretty please with suggar on the top?
