Test System Setup

I would first like to thank ASUS, InWin, Patriot, and Fractal Design for supplying products for me to test with.

 

To see our testing methodology, and to find out what goes into making our charts, please refer to our CPU Cooler Testing and Methodology article for that information.

 

 

Thermal Results

The chart makes it seem that the Macho Rev.B did slightly worse than average as it places on our chart. However, keep in mind that this cooler, and its 52.5 degree stock result, is only six degrees away from the top of the chart, and nearly thirty degrees better than the stock solution. Not too shabby for a silent cooler.

In the chart, coolers like the D14 and the TD03 keep close company with the Macho Rev.B. The Macho Rev.B is even just slightly more than a degree behind another dual radiator AIO. Considering the Macho Rev.B's close company, the 72.75 degree result at nearly half the price of the others really starts to show the Macho Rev.B in a much better light than the actual numerical placement in the charts.

 

 

Noise Level Results

The Macho Rev.B jumps to the top of the chart, which is technically the bottom, but that is where you want to be when it comes to this chart. Thermalright shows us that the TY-147 fan is a solid choice when it comes to silence, as at idle, we found the fan turning at 820 RPM, and delivering only 24 dB of noise.

Even when it came to allowing the fan to spin as fast as possible, at reported speeds of 1350 RPM, we were pleased to find the TY-147 still near the top of the list, in second place with a 36dB rating.
