Testing:

To properly test the Scythe Kama Angle 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 FFts) 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 8 and a front side bus of 400 to give me 3.2GHz, the vCore used will be 1.34V. All temperatures will be taken in degrees Celsius.

 

  • Processor: Intel Core2 Dual E7200 (Stock & 3.2GHz)
  • Motherboard: Biostar TPower I45
  • Memory: G.SkillDDR2 800 (PC2 6400) 2 x 1 GB 5-5-5-15
  • Video Card: MSI HD3850
  • Power Supply: Corsair VX550W Power Supply
  • Hard Drive: Seagate 250GB SATA
  • Optical Drive: Lite-on DVD-RW
  • Case: Open Air
  • OS: Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Ambient Temperature: 25° Celsius

 

Comparison Heatsinks:

  • Heatsink: Reeven RCCT
  • Heatsink: Xigmatek HDT-S1283
  • Heatsink: Intel Stock 45nm HSF

 

 

 

 

The Scythe Kama Angle CPU cooler performed exceedingly well, and displayed slight differences with the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 and the Reeven RCCT CPU coolers. It fared well in the idle overclock testing, only to come out in third place in the load overclocked tests. Still, temperatures remained in the safe zone throughout the testing.
