Chad's CPU Cooler Test System Specifications

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 (October 2016) for more information.

Thermal Results

Six point two five degrees out of first place looks much worse on this chart than it is. Sadly though, while 57.25-degrees is reasonable with the CPU at stock speed, there is not an AIO on there that does worse, unless it is smaller or set, so the fans are barely turning.

With the overclock applied and the fans still controlled by PWM, the gap widens to nearly ten degrees out of the lead. 75-degrees is more than we expected to see from an AIO of this size, and it is hard to put a favorable spin on things when it performs the same as the $50 MA410P.

Letting the fans do what they can to cool the radiator, we gained a whole lot of noise to obtain one degree in efficiency. Still close to ten degrees from the top of the chart, and beat by a $45 air cooler says it all.

Noise Level Results

The noise levels start out on a good note, where the fans in our test topped out at 1272RPM delivering only 30 dB of noise. We also disabled the fans at idle to test the pump, and while turning at 5768RPM in all of our tests, it was delivering 29 dB of noise to the room, and without the rubber cover on it, it was louder.

At this point, we still feel that the fans are relatively silent in operation. With the fans getting up to 1486RPM, we only raised 3 dB to 33. It may not look good on the chart, but that is just breaking into the average human's range of picking up and distinguishing noises.

To gain just a single degree in performance from the Liqfusion 240 RGB, we had a massive increase in sound. Nearly doubling the rating to 58 dB, it is many magnitudes louder than it is under control of PWM circuits. Our advice is simple, don't run the fans at full power.
