TweakTown uses a different method for testing CPU heatsinks which allows for an even playing field across all product tests. We feel that by using the same ambient temperature and strict lab-like testing procedures we are able to accurately compare one product to another. More information on our testing procedure can be found in the T.E.C.C. article here.
Both the PWM and Silent Versions of the 5610 deliver load temperatures that are higher than the stock retail coolers from both AMD and Intel. The same is true for the idle tests, it is clear that there is good reason for GlacialTech to include a warning on the website for high-end CPUs. Granted our testing mythology is geared towards these high-end CPUs, but at these temperatures even stock speed mid-range CPUs could fall into trouble without good case cooling.
Our SPL testing shows the 5610 Silent to be one of the best coolers we have tested when it comes to acoustic footprint. With such a drop off in sound compared to the PWM model it is hard to see how the Silent only loses a little bit of ground when it comes to performance. Clearly when it comes to the two 5610 Coolers the Silent is the way to go.
