System Setup & Thermal Performance

  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6320
  • Motherboard: Asus P5Q-VM @ 500MHz FSB
  • HDD: Seagate ST3500630AS
  • VGA: Sapphire AMD HD4850 512MB
  • PSU: NorthQ Black Magic Flex 650W

We decided to test the cooler using the included silicone grease. With a layer on the CPU we left the system working in order for the thermal paste to stabilize for 5 hours. CPU load was achieved by running Prime95 torture test (blend) 30 minutes. The idle temperature measurements were noted after the system was resting at the windows desktop for 30 minutes. Ambient temperature is maintained (as accurately as possible) at 20°C at the time of the test. SpeedStep is disabled.

The thermal performance of the cooler is outstandingly good, especially considering the retail price. Due to the cooler’s size there is only a very slim performance difference between running the fan at maximum speed and in PWM mode so the quieter system controlled setting is more desirable.
