Testing and Setup:

Testing of the heatsink will involve applying a load simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs in stock and overclocked scenarios. Both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in RealTemp after running eight threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage after one hour. The temperature values for each of the four cores will be averaged and displayed on the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 25 °C throughout testing of the Gamer Storm, as well as the comparison heatsinks. All the data shown in the graphs is in degrees Celsius. The included thermal paste from Deepcool will be used during testing, and thermal pastes as packaged from the other coolers were used with each heatsink, respectively. The fan on the Gamer Storm will be run at full speed for these tests.

The results here are right on par with my expectations - the Gamer Storm actually does battle with the Noctua DH-U12P! The Noctua heatsinks are regarded as some of the best coolers for their size, and the Gamer Storm is about the same size. The two Thermalright coolers that outperformed the Gamer Storm are very large, which provide respective results. I will wrap up my thoughts of this review on the next page.
