Benchmarks: Stock Performance

Configuring the CPU to be at its stock settings we see that NZXT’s Kraken X61 pulls through as the better cooling solution for outright temperature analysis. Observing the figures highlights 2-3C in difference between the coolers, the Kraken X61 operating at a slower RPM too!

One thing to note, Corsair’s H110i GT is distinctly quieter than the Kraken X61 at respective fan speeds. Kraken X61 emits a regular high-pitched whirring noise once it hits around 1800RPM.

Corsair H110i GT Fan Speed: MAX = 2200RPM / PWM = 1700RPM
NZXT Kraken X61 Fan Speed: MAX = 2000RPM / PWM (PERF) = 1650RPM

** UPDATE ** Corsair has since sent us a replacement H110i GT because they felt the results were not consistent with how the cooler should perform. After re-testing with this new replacement we can confirm the temperature results did improve -- we have updated the chart below.
