As I said we installed the Kabuto 3 in our Z97 system, it is made up of the follow components:
Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K
Motherboard: ASUS Z97-A
Video Card: MSI GTX 770
Memory: 16GB Kingston 10th Anniversary
Power: be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W
Storage: 120GB Samsung 840 Evo
Cooling: Scythe Kabuto 3
Case: Cooler Master MasterCase 5 with 2 fans
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.
Taking a look at our results you can see that during idle the cooler sits closer to the bottom of our results, but during load it is pretty much in the middle of our test group. Keep in mind our test group has quite a few high-performance CPU coolers, including two from Scythe.
