As I mentioned we installed the Reeven Brontes in our Ryzen test system, which is comprised of the following hardware.
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
Cooling: Reeven Brontes
Motherboard: ASUS Prime X470-PRO
Graphics Card: Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition
Memory: HyperX Predator RGB DDR4-2933 16GB
Storage: Gigabyte UD Pro 512GB
Power: Corsair RM850x
We will be comparing the Reeven Brontes to the following CPU coolers tested on the same hardware.
– AMD Wraith Prism RGB
– AMD Wraith Spire
– Cooler Master MasterAir MA410M
For performance testing we will first test idle temperatures. These are taken on the Windows 10 desktop and hour after the system has been turned on.
Moving on to load testing we will be running the AIDA64 system stability test with the CPU only checked. This puts a full load on our CPU. We run this test for 1 hour and record the highest temperature throughout the test.
Looking at our results they are not the best, but the Reeven Brontes is not designed to be super high performance. The cooler is designed for small form factor systems is not that large at all. It is also pretty quiet compared to the AMD Wraith Prism and Wraith Spire coolers that sounds like they are about to take off when you put full load on your CPU.
