Testing of the GAMMAXX 400 will consist of loading the processor at both stock and overclocked states using Prime95's small FFT feature for one hour. Temperatures will then be measured using realtemp. Load temperatures will be the highest recorded average from realtemp while idle temperatures will be the lowest recorded average from realtemp with no system usage for one hour. The GAMMAXX 400 and the comparison coolers will be run with the supplied fan in a push configuration.
