With the system running at stock speeds the Yasya cooled our i7-920 to a very nice 57.5*C on the high setting. That’s a full degree better then the Mugen2 and 3 degrees behind the massive Noctua NH-D14, but a very nice 16.5 degrees cooler then the stock Intel HSF. With the Yasya on high the fan will get your attention, but on low, the temp was 2 degrees warmer coming in at 59.5*C and it was quiet.
With the system overclocked slightly to 3.5GHz the Yasya was still in the top 5, cooling our i7-920 to 65.25*C on high. It was still behind the NH-D14 by 3 degrees, but 18.25 degrees cooler than the stock Intel HSF. With the Yasya on low, the temp came in at 69*C, nipping at the heels of the Noctua NH-U12P single fan configuration.
Since the Yasya did so well I decided to see how it would fare at 3.8GHz. With the heat turned up a bit more we have our C0 stepping i7-920 at 3.8GHz (190x20, CPU 1.3875v). After 30 minutes the Yasya was holding at 80.75*C, 3.5 degrees behind the Thermalright Venomous X that was paired with two NF-P12 fans. It is a bit warmer than I would want to run 24/7, though.
