Twenty-six degrees better than the Intel Stock cooler, and only four-degrees out of first place; the Naia 240 takes on the world to grab the fifth cooler spot on the chart. This I nothing to sneeze at, considering it was designed to be efficient, and it is taking on the major players here, it says a lot for the first AIO to leave Reeven.
Once we applied the overclock, the Naia 240 does even better. Moving up one slot with a temperature of 69.75-degrees, the Reeven Naia 2240 is now in fourth place. Again, very respectable results.
Pushing the voltage to the fans involves a lot of noise, and we can see that the PWM fan curve has little left behind. There are less than two-degrees of advantage to running the cooler in this fashion, and we feel the PWM control is more than enough for most users.
Noise Level Results
Delivering the high ranking thermal results does not come with a ton of noise trying to drone out any potential thoughts. The fan topped out at 658 RPM for the stock test under control of PWM. We only saw 24 dB on the meter, and the fans are quieter than the pump at full speed, which is 28dB.
Even after applying the overclock, delivering much more heat to the loop, the fans top out at 1046 RPM, and are just into the audible range at 34dB. Considering this cooler took fourth place at this time on the thermal charts, we love the limited amount of noise needed to accomplish it.
The result shown in this chart of 66dB is why we do not feel it is worth the effort to gain 1.75 degrees of headroom. The noise nearly doubled in numbers, which is some three to four times louder when all the math is worked out. We do not feel the need to abuse ourselves, but it nice to know the 1700 RPM speed is attainable with our fans if the need should ever arise.
