Test System & Test Results
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.
Just squeaking in as the tenth most efficient cooler at idle, it puts it in direct competition with say the V6GT which is much louder, and fall just behind the Jing at an even price point, but the EVO is black and gold not green.
At load, it falls right in the middle of a Thermaltake sandwich. Besting quite a few coolers on the list, this black and gold version of the Fenrir is performing brilliantly, especially with the lack of noise coming from our test chamber.
In the audio testing, at idle, the Fenrir EVO does move up a few slots with an impressively quiet 35 dB.
With the load testing the noise level does rise a bit, but nothing that you can hear over a graphics card during gaming. At 55 dB it isn't the best, but plays right into line with a lot of the silent solutions being offered today.
