8 Popular CPU Heatsink Tested In Detail On Core i7
To inaugurate our new heatsink platform and to establish a baseline of new data, we put eight of the top coolers tested previously through the paces once again. The eight coolers in question are, in alphabetical order, the Noctua NH-C12P and NH-U12P, the Prolimatech Megahalems, the Scythe Kabuto and Mugen-2, the Thermalright Ultra-120 and Ultra-120 eXtreme, and the Zalman CNPS10X Extreme.
Changing our platform to a more power hungry setup has revealed the weaknesses of top-down coolers. It hasn't however, created any new winners. The heatsinks that excelled today also did so on our old test platform, though the increased range of results has created more separation, making it easier to proclaim one cooler better/worse than another.
