Testing:  

To properly test the Slinex Ixtrema, I will need to record temperatures during both idle time (little to no CPU usage), as well as during full load (100% CPU usage). I will be using SpeedFan 4.33 to gather the temperatures of the CPU cores. I will be using OCCT:PK to simulate the full load testing, and run it for thirty minutes. I will let the computer sit and cool down for thirty minutes before gathering the idle temperatures. I will be testing the processor at both stock speeds with stock voltage settings, as well as overclocked speeds of 3.60GHz, with the voltage increased to 1.46 volts. All of the temperatures are measured in degrees Celsius.  

Testing Setup:

As you can see in the graphs above, the Silenx Ixtrema was beaten by a few of the coolers that were tested, the second fan that was installed on the cooler did help with the overall temperatures, however not by as much as I would have expected.
