CoolIT Eliminator ReviewFormer staff writer - January 4, 2007
For testing this unit I will be running all tests twice; once on maximum cooling and the second time on the silent setting (least cooling). On each cooling setting, the computer will sit at the Windows desktop for 15 minutes for the idle temperature and then 30 minutes of Prime95 will be run and this will be used for the load temperature. I will also test with my CPU running at a stock speed of 2.2 GHz as well as at a stable overclock of 2.9 GHz.
