The following system was used in testing:
Case: NZXT Phantom
Motherboard: XFX 680i LT SLI
CPU: Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz
Memory: 2x2GB OCZ SLI Ready DDR2 800 MHz
Power Supply: XFX XXX 650W Modular
- Thermaltake Frio
- Corsair A50
|CPU Cooler||Idle (°C)||Load (°C)|
|Thermaltake Frio – 2 Fans – High||33C||44C|
|Thermaltake Frio – 2 Fans – Low||34C||47C|
With some recent changes in my case and a rather lengthy CPU cooler list, we decided to start off fresh for testing.
The Corsair A50 had decent cooling performance. It fit right in between our Thermaltake Frio High and Low temperature results, bringing in an idle temperature of 33C and a load temperature of 46C.
