The CRYORIG M9i was installed in our Z97 system, which is comprised of the following components:
Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K
Motherboard: ASUS Z97-A
Video Card: Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP!
Memory: 16GB Kingston 10th Anniversary
Power: be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W
Storage: 120GB Samsung 840 Evo
Cooling: CRYORIG M9i CPU Cooler
Case: Cooler Master MasterCase 5 with 2 fans
Since we’ve recently changed our older test system to this one we do not have a lot of coolers to test. These graphs will be updated as we test more coolers. Sadly we do not have an Intel Stock Cooler on hand to compare the M9i to. Keep in mind that all other coolers in this test group are high performance coolers and cost 2-3x more than the M9i.
For testing we will first be taking our idle temperatures from the Windows 10 desktop after having the system on in an idle state for one hour.
Next we will be putting 100% load on the CPU using Prime95. We will run it and take a temperature reading at the 1 hour mark.
Now as you can see the cooler scored dead last in both tests in our test group, but that was expected. As I said all other coolers in our test group are high performance coolers. I was quite surprised to see that the load score was not as bad as I thought it would be.
