Thermaltake Jing CPU Cooler Review

» Discuss this article (6)

Testing and Setup:

Testing of this heatsink will involve applying a load simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs in stock and overclocked scenarios, where both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in RealTemp after running eight threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage during a period of one hour. The temperature values for each of the four cores will be averaged and displayed in the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 22.5 °C throughout testing of the Thermaltake Jing, as well as the comparison units. All the data shown in the graphs below is in degrees Celsius. The included thermal paste from Thermaltake will be used during testing and thermal pastes on other heatsinks from their respective manufacturers will be used. The fans on the each cooler will be run at full speed for these tests, along with a low speed run of the Jing.

Comparison Heatsinks:







Well, for the Jing's size, these results kind of surprise me. I expected a little bit lower temperatures, but in reality it only performed a few degrees cooler than the average temperatures of the comparison coolers. However, for the Jing's fan design and flow rates along with their static pressure, these results turn out to be a little ordinary. The high speed a low speed tests leave little to the imagination, as lower fan speeds cause a slower heat transfer between the surface of the fins and the air blowing over them. I'll go into more depth about the fan design that hinders the performance in my conclusion.
