As I said we installed the cooler in our Z97 test system.
It 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: Cooler Master V750
Storage: 120GB Samsung 840 Evo
Cooling: Scythe Ninja 4
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.
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.
As you can see the Scythe Ninja 4 outperforms the Noctua NH-C14s by quite a bit!
