Thermal Results

This early is when the disappointment starts to set in. While 58.75 degrees is better than average, it is plain to see that it is half a degree worse than the MA410P. We do feel that it falls into the right area on the chart, but it is shocking to see their own, cheaper solution, performing better.

With an overclock applied, the gap tightens to a quarter of a degree, but facts are facts, and the 75.25-degree result still fails to do better than its kid brother.

Allowing the fans to do everything they are capable of doing to the tower, we got a bunch of noise and around two degrees reduction in temperature. We are not that impressed with the thermal results if you had issues gathering that from our last few comments.

Noise Level Results

With the processor stock and the fans under control of PWM, the front fan was spinning at 880 RPM while the rear fan was spinning at 985 RPM. At this point in the test, we grabbed the meter and found the fans to be delivering only 27 dB into the room.

Applying the overclock takes the fans further up into the speed range. The front fan was spinning at 1187RPM while the rear fan was turning at 1358, and the amount of noise is kept low at just 33 dB.

With the fans allowed to do what they can at maximum power, the front fans spun at 1660 RPM, and at this time the rear fan was reporting 1802 RPM. The noise increased a bunch at this point, and jumped to 48 dB.
