All things were considered, when it comes to the stock setting, the Ninja 4 does a good job. It falls in the lower-end of the spectrum with AIO results and falls only 0.25 degrees behind the NH-D15S with the Ninja 4 coming in at 49.75 degrees at this time.
Even as we raised the clocks and TDP of the processor, we still find the Ninja 4 performing admirably. There are a few AIOs it outperforms, and the gap between it and the NH-D15S only slightly increases as the Ninja 4 comes in at 70.66 degrees here.
Noise Level Results
To level the playing field in the way we test the fans, we set the switch to the "H" or high position. Then we used a fan controller to limit the voltage at this point to 7.5V. With a reported fan speed of 1055 RPM, we pulled out the sound meter and took a reading of 29 dB at this time.
With 12V supplied to the fan, again in the high setting on the switch, we saw our fan spinning at 1505 RPM. At this time, things got noticeably louder, but the 47 dB result obtained here is still an acceptable noise level for most users.
