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 more information.
Our chart is a bit unfair as we are pitting the M9i against everything we test, and it appears that the 55.25-degree result isn't all that good. Looking closer, though, it is number two top of the list when it comes to coolers with fans smaller than 120mm.
Again the 78.5-degree result looks a bit bad when shown in this chart. The reality is that it is not the best performer in its category but is still within a degree or so of the leaders. To be honest, we weren't even sure the M9i had enough to take on this 4770K, but it did just that and still was more than twenty degrees from the throttle point.
Noise Level Results
When noise comes into the picture, the M9i, and its 92mm fan do well. With the speed of the fan reported at 1430RPM, all we could get from this cooler was 24dB at a foot of distance.
Even as we saw this fan spool to 2224RPM, the noise level never went above 41dB. What we know of the past coolers, usually a fan this small meant a ton of noise too, and in the M9i you get a near silent solution with decent results.
