Test System & 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.

After a couple of runs and time to allow the TIM to set in, I got these results. Considering the fin area and the specs of the fan, I would have thought the Tower 120 Extreme to be able to pull a bit better numbers than its almost 62 degree load temperature.

Tuniq's claims on the fan are a bit off, at least with the fan I received. Not only is the fan not quiet, as you can see by our results in the chart. I have had many fans rated in the 80 CFM range and above, and I have to say, even out of the cooler body, I don't think this fan really got to that sort of power.
