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

As one would expect, with the radiator being as large as it is, we fully expected to see low numbers here. Swiftech slides into the number one slot here, if only by half a degree, they do offer the best stock loaded temperatures we have seen.

With the overclock applied, things get interesting. We find that with the pump at 3000 RPM, and the fans powered with 12V, it falls ever so slightly behind the Corsair H110i GTX. More about this later, but we have not one thing to complain about with the showing of 64.75 degrees in our charts.

 

 

Noise Level Results

With the fans receiving 7.5V as all the other fans do, we saw 28dB on our meter. At this time, the pump is heard over the fans reading 32dB all the while it runs at full speed. Of course with PWM hub in control of things, both the sound level and the pump will lessen the noise they offer; lower than what we are showing.

To get the thermal results we offered in the overclocked chart, we have the fans powered with 12V, and at this time, we can hear them as they deliver 58dB of noise. Again, this is why the hub is made, and when in control, you never will see this level of noise. However, there is a slight tradeoff using the PWM function as temperatures do slightly increase using it.
