Benchmarks - Thermal Results
We have recently made changes to our cooling department and the associated testing methodology, so please note that the number of results shown below will increase over time as we add additional products. We hope that these results will appear clearer to the majority of our readership and look forward to building upon the baselines that you see below.

We start off by letting the CPU cooler “bed in” for a couple of hours, to ensure the paste has time to move around and form an even layer, after which an idle result is taken.

As we can see above, the idle result is good @ stock clocks but once overclocked, with the increase in voltage and with the removal of Intel’s automatic downclocking, we see the cooler begin to struggle, but this is typical behaviour of air coolers of this type.

Considering this is a 6c/12t CPU, the stock and overclocked results are reasonable, but very similar to the non-RGB version that we reviewed back in November, despite the huge difference in fan design, proving that the cooler performs well regardless.
