Sunbeamtech Core-Contact Freezer LGA1366

4. Results

Even at stock speed and voltages, the Intel Core i7-920 processor produces enough heat. Intel's stock cpu cooler gave around 58 degrees C under full load, while the Core-Contact Freezer 92mm kept the CPU cooler by 7 degrees C:

Pushing the Intel Core-i7 920 to work at 3.60GHz requires higher voltage producing even more heat. Here is a strong test that any product has to pass in order to justify its retail price. The Intel stock cooler gave around 90 degrees C. The Sunbeamtech Core-Contact Freezer managed to get the cpu temperature down to 72 degrees C improving the overall performance. Very impressive!
