Test System Setup
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 that information.
Idle temperature was kept to a chilly 26.5 degrees across the cores. As we ramped up our testing, we found that the R1 Universal is still a player, even with the thinner fan. There was only a 0.25-degree difference between the R1 Universal and the Ultimate version. While 51.75 degrees does put this solution below the halfway mark on the chart, keep in mind that it is less than six degrees out of the lead.
Idle temperatures went up a degree with the overclock applied, but the R1 Universal still held its ground during the course of the test. With our R1 Universal now within seven degrees of the lead, and with only a bit over a degree between the Universal and the Ultimate, we find the 72.58 degree result commendable considering they moved to a much thinner fan.
Noise Level Results
As for the sound level, with the voltage regulated, we found these fans to be just within the audible range with a 30 dB reading. This is actually 1dB louder than what we saw with the R1 Ultimate, and the thin fan was spinning 970 RPM at this time, while the thicker fan was a tad slower at 930 RPM.
Once the fans were freed from limitation, the audible level hit 50 dB. The R1 Universal is still just louder than the original, bout not outside of the margin of error on either test. At this time, we found the thin and thick fans to be spinning at 1400 RPM and 1380 RPM respectively.
