We used Core Temp v0.99.5.27 to obtain all of the temperature data.  We let our system sit at idle for 30 minutes and then again under 100% load while running Prime95 (64bit) v25.11, build 2 for 30 minutes using the blended test. The room temperature was kept a constant 73 degrees Fahrenheit (23C) for all benchmarking. Both of our coolers were tested with Arctic Silver 5 as the thermal interface material. Because our fans were multispeed, we ran each test at a “low” speed and a “high” speed.
