The Kingwin 120mm fans, being identical in every way except for color, were put to the test together. I replaced the upper 200mm fan, with the two 120mm fans, as anyone replacing the fan might do. Using OCCT’s Power Supply Test, I loaded down my hardware for a solid 30 minute run to see how much more heat these fans could remove (both were mounted in exhaust) in comparison. HW Monitor was used to record the idle and load temperatures for the CPU, motherboard, HDDs, and GPU.
With it being the winter months and running a low gas bill, the ambient room temperature was 19 degrees Celsius, giving both the stock fan and Kingwin fans the same benefit in cooling. Since the room temperature remained the same for testing, the results show an accurate telling of which fans did a better job cooling. The temperature results from this testing procedure are shown below.
