Chad's CPU Cooler Test System Specifications

 

 

I would 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 more information.

 

 

Thermal Results

Only five degrees out of the lead with our stock testing is a pretty good result. While the charts may show it is mediocre, realize this Frostflow 120L is still in the top third of coolers tested, many of which cost nearly double this.

With the overclock applied we find the gap widens a bit now to nine degrees out of first place. Considering it almost beat a dual radiator AIO and being within two degrees of the better air coolers is right about where we expected this smaller AIO to come into play in our charts.

 

 

Noise Level Results

There are quite a few choices on the market for cooling your CPU, but the 35dB result we took with the fan at 1475 RPM is right on the average line for 120mm fans.

With the fan allowed to do its worst, we recorded the maximum speed at 2060 RPM and at this time the noise level was at 51dB. Again, not the most silent option, but isn't so loud that it starts to drone in your ears like others further down the list will do.
