Temperatures

7V Idle Load

Noctua NH-U12S Dual Fan 33 °C 53 °C
Noctua NH-U12S Single Fan 34 °C 57 °C
Scythe Ashura 36 °C 58 °C
Cooler Master Hyper 103 36 °C 60 °C
Alpenföhn Matterhorn Pure 36 °C 61 °C
Prolimatech Lynx 35 °C 63 °C
Intel Stock 39 °C 83 °C


To measure the cooling capacity we took temperatures in idle and load with the fans at 7 and 12 V. The idle temperature represents the lowest temperature hit by the processor package after 10 minutes in idle. The load temperature is the highest temperature hit by the processor package after one pass of wPrime v2.10. The wPrime test takes 4 minutes and puts load on all 8 threads. Room temperature is 25°C.

12V Idle Load
Corsair H75 Single Fan 32 °C 51 °C
Noctua NH-U12S Dual Fan 33 °C 51 °C
Noctua NH-U12S Single Fan 33 °C 53 °C
Prolimatech Lynx 34 °C 55 °C
Scythe Ashura 34 °C 55 °C
Cooler Master Hyper 103 36 °C 58 °C
Alpenföhn Matterhorn Pure 34 °C 57 °C
Intel Stock 35 °C 70 °C

Noise Levels

  7 Volt 12 Volt
Intel Stock 33.3 dBA 37.1 dBA
Noctua NH-U12S Single Fan 32.3 dBA 37.4 dBA
Alpenföhn Matterhorn Pure 32.3 dBA 38.4 dBA
Cooler Master Hyper 103 34.2 dBA 39.5 dBA
Noctua NH-U12S Dual Fan 33.4 dBA 39.6 dBA
Prolimatech Lynx 33.0 dBA 40.3 dBA
Scythe Ashura 32.0 dBA 41.0 dBA
Corsair H75 Single Fan 34.5 dBA 41.7 dBA


Decibel meter (Voltcraft SL-200) has been placed 1 meter away from the cooler. Measurements are conducted in a quiet room, where there are no other noise source. 32 dBA is the lowest we can get in our room. Also here the measurements are conducted at 7 and 12 V.
