This mid-sized cooler sits toward the bottom of the mid-table at idle stock speeds.
With the CPU loaded the M9i’s relationship to other coolers is around the same as when the CPU was idle.
At 4500MHz the cooler carries on cooling where others start to fall off, climbing up the rankings with an idle CPU.
Even when the processor is at full throttle and working it’s socks off the M9i retains it’s composure, being amongst the top of the air coolers.
Read on for my conclusion.
