The following system was used in testing:
Case: Fractal Design Core 3000
Motherboard: ASRock 890FX Deluxe5
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz
Memory: 2x2GB Patriot Gseries DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz
Video Card: Sapphire HD 5830 Xtreme 1GB
Tests were conducted under idle and load states. The computer was left to sit after 30 minutes after being turned on to check the idle temperature. The load temperature was found by running the latest version of Prime95 which supports multi-core CPUs by default. Temperatures were obtained through SpeedFan.
|Thermaltake Frio OCK – High|
|Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro|
|Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM|
|Cooler Master GeminII S524|
|NZXT Havik 140|
|Thermaltake Frio OCK – Low|
The tests revealed a very nice and low 29°C idle and a moderate 54°C under load conditions. I was expecting more for such a large cooler, at least under the load conditions. Perhaps adding that second fan would give you those extra couple degree drop.
