Thermolab Trinity CPU Cooler ReviewTue, Apr 26, 2011 - 12:00 AM
The Temperature Testing Results
At the stock 2.8GHz the Trinity comes in at 61.25*C on low and 55.25*C on high. On low the Trinity is nice and quiet while running a nice 18.25 degrees cooler than the stock Intel HSF. On high that gap jumps to 24.25 degrees better than the stock HSF and only 1.5 degrees warmer than the first place cooler, the Prolimatech Super Mega.
Bumping the system with a mild overclock to 3.5GHz the Trinity on low comes in at 66.75*C and 63.25 on high. It is still at least 12 degrees better than the stock HSF at stock clock settings, and only 3.25 degrees behind the recently tested Antec Kuhler H2O 920 on high. The Trinity did it much quieter though, on high or low speed. With both coolers on low the Trinity wins out by 1.5 degrees.
Pushing the system to 4GHz, the Trinity on high is still doing nicely coming in at 74.25*C, 7.25 degrees behind the Antec Kuhler 920 on high, and 1.75 degrees behind the Corsair H70. The Trinity is also cooling the i7-930 overclocked to 4GHz 5.25 degrees cooler than the stock Intel HSF at the stock 2.8GHz.
