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.
With one fan installed and running the idle version of the testing, the Ninja3 falls right in between the NH-C12P SE14 and the Yasya. Once the second fan was added I was able to bump the Ninja 3 up another three slots and with a loss of almost a full degree at idle.
At load the Ninja starts to show some of that design innovation "magic". Oddly enough it tied with the Yasya with a single fan in third place. Adding the second $9 fan is where the Ninja took the grand prize. With a temperature of 52.6°C, the Ninja proves itself to be the most efficient cooler money can buy.
Out of the box and even with the additional second fan, the noise level plays right in the averages for all the coolers we have tested to date. Testing was run with the fan control in its High setting and PWM voltage applied.
Once things are set into full action, the fans do bring a bit of a hum to the environment. Looking back at coolers I have used on my own rigs for extended periods of time, it isn't all that noisy of a cooler; but if you are used to silence as I am, it will take a bit of getting used to. The same High setting was used with 12V to the fans this time.
