Using our trusted T.E.C.C. testing methods, we compare SilenX's IXC-120HA2 to all of our previously tested CPU coolers.

Test Results

 

TweakTown uses a different method for testing CPU heatsinks which allows for an even playing field across all product tests. We feel that by using the same ambient temperature and strict lab-like testing procedures we are able to accurately compare one product to another. More information on our testing procedure can be found in the T.E.C.C. article here.

 

 

The moment of truth for the SilenX IXC-120HA2, and as you can see the cooler is a real performer. We have tested other coolers that perform a little better so let's take a look at the acoustic footprint and see how quiet the cooler is.

 

 

Here we see that not too many coolers are quieter than the IXC-120HA2, and when you add in the performance numbers we see that the SilenX flagship is a well rounded product offering good performance at low acoustic levels.
