To properly test the Reeven RCCT-0901SP CPU cooler, I will record the temperatures of the processor during its idle period (little to no CPU usage) and at load (100% CPU usage). I will run the computer for 30 minutes without any stress before I gather the maximum idle temperatures. To gather load temperatures I will use Prime95 V25.8 (Small FFt’s) and have it run it for 30 minutes to gather the maximum load temperature. I will use Real Temp 2.70 to monitor the maximum idle and load temperatures of the processors cores. For stock testing, the CPU will run at its default clock speeds (2.53GHz) and default voltages. For the Overclocked tests, I will use a multiplier of “x8” and a front side bus of 400 to give me 3.2GHz, while the Vcore used will be 1.34V. All temperatures will be taken in degrees Celsius.
