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.
With the fan RPM being pretty low at this point of testing, we did find the idle temperature to hover in the 30 degree range, which is a touch high compared to most others, but is fine for day to day idle temperatures. As we loaded the system in the stock configuration, we find that while not taking the top of the chart at this time, the 50 degree result is quite admirable for a cooler of one tower and one fan.
With the increase in fan speed for the overclocked testing, the idle temperature was only 27.5 degrees at this point. We also see that Thermalright did not give one inch when it comes to performance. Now again, 69.92 degrees isn't breaking records, but consider there is only one air cooler better on our chart.
Noise Level Results
Gathering the 24 dB rating we had at idle was done from a foot away from the cooler and also while we were seeing reported speeds of 825 RPM. While they do take top of the chart for this effort, they are also the third best air cooler in stock temperatures, while making very little difference to the noise in any office.
Even when to came to taking the second spot in air cooling, and the fan allowed to spin at its maximum of 1340 RPM reported with AIDA64, Thermalright is still able to do so with less noise than any other cooler we have tested to date. Very impressive all around.
