Cooler Master Gemin II S524 CPU Cooler Review

Testing
The following system was used in testing:

Case:  NZXT H2
Motherboard: ASRock 890FX Deluxe5
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz
Memory: 2x2GB Patriot Gseries DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz

CPU cooling:

Tests were conducted under idle and load states. The computer was left to sit after 30 minutes after being turned on to check the idle temperature. The load temperature was found by running the latest version of Prime95 which supports multi-core CPUs by default. Temperatures were obtained through SpeedFan.

I wasn’t really expecting the Gemin II S524 to have competing results with the other coolers we’ve tested, mainly because of the design of the cooler being horizontal, instead of vertical which provides more airflow. However, the Idle temperatures reached 33°C, the lowest we’ve seen on this test system. Load temperatures reached a high of 54°C, which really isn’t that bad for a cooler like this. Replacing the 120mm with a 140mm fan should provide even cooler results.
