We produced the highest possible temperature using the OCCT v2.0.1 software and a custom 30-minute mixed operation:
We left both cores of our CPU running at full load for about 30 minutes. All
the temperatures were logged using the CoreTemp 0.99.3 software as well as the OCCT v2.0.1. We repeated the procedure for two scenarios:
For the noise measurements we used the Precision
Gold N09AQ Environment Meter. All measurements were taken at a 30cm distance from the cpu cooler running at full speed. In the following pages you will see a comparison among many CPU coolers. For all the tests, we we used the Tuniq TX-2 thermal compound.
