To test the capability of the coolers, our testing methodology is simple. We measure the temperatures after 10 minutes on idle, both at 3.9GHz which our samples stock turbo boost speed and with an overclock of 4.5GHz. To test the loaded temperatures I use prime95 and its torture test for 10 minutes and record the max temperature given.
Any time a cooler hits 100c on any test, it is automatically classed as a fail, simply due to the extreme temperatures which aren’t good for 24/7 systems.
