CPU cooling:

  • Thermaltake Jing

Tests were conducted under idle and load states. The computer was left to sit after 30 minutes after being turned on to check the idle temperature. The load temperature was found by running the latest version of Prime95 which supports multi-core CPUs by default. Temperatures were obtained through SpeedFan.

CPU Cooler Idle (°C) Load (°C)
Thermaltake Jing – High 19°C 39°C
Thermaltake Jing – Low 19°C 41°C

Since each fan on the Jing had a fan adjuster knob we adjusted both to either high or low for the tests. As you can see, there’s really no difference in the idle temperature of 19°C. However there was a slight improvement of 2°C when both fans were on high fan speeds, with the load temperature at 39°C. The fans were a lot noisier on high fan speeds than I was expecting.
