Temperature Test

 

 

The temperature of the core is pulled from MSI Afterburner with the max reading used after a completed run off 3DMark Vantage and the Performance preset.

Looking at the temperature side of things you can see the numbers aren't bad sitting in the middle of the pack. The idle is fairly cool at 29c and the 68c maximum under load is also pretty strong. It's not the largest of coolers so we're pretty happy with these numbers.
