Testing:

To put the Thermaltake SpinQ VT to the test I will be making a comparison of the temperatures at idle and under load, both while the CPU is at stock voltages and clock speeds, as well as when the CPU is overclocked and over-volted to show what kind of cooling performance that the Spin Q VT has to offer when compared to other socket 1156 compatible heatsinks. These heatsinks will be tested head-to-head as they are delivered from the manufacturer. I could throw in a bunch of testing variables, but it is not what the products are capable of as delivered. To test the idle temperatures I will allow the computer to stay idle for 30 minutes and take the idle temperature at this point. For the load testing I will use Prime95 version 25.9 and choose the blend testing and allow the processor and memory controller to heat up to the maximum temperatures. The time frame is a four hour run to allow the temperature to peak, usually in the 14K test. I will use Real Temp 3.0 to take the high and low temperatures and average the temperatures generated over the four cores as my reported temperature.

The stock i5 heatsink is just woeful when you put a load on the CPU. The SpinQ VT improves cooling performance by 28 degrees over the stock cooling solution when the Intel i5 750 gets a small overclock thrown its way and delivers a 19 degree Celsius improvement at stock clock speeds. All in all, pretty respectable for a cooler that is unusually shaped.
