Thermolab Micro Silencer Review

Testing:  

To properly test the Thermolab Micro Silencer, 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 running it for 30 minutes and I will let the computer sit and cool down for 30 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 3.6GHz with the voltage increased to 1.46 volts. All the temperatures are measured in degrees Celsius.  

Testing Setup:

  • Processor: Intel E6600 (stock & 3.6GHz)
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6
  • Memory: Mushkin PC2-6400 (4GB)
  • Video Card: Sapphire HD3850
  • Power Supply: OCZ 700W GameXStream
  • Hard Drive: Western Digital 320GB 16MB Cache SATA
  • Optical Drive(s): Lite-on DVD-RW
  • Case: Cooler Master Cosmos 1000
  • O/S: Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Ambient Temperature: 22.6 degrees Celsius

 

Comparison Heatsinks:

 

 

 

 

As you can see, this cooler was outperformed by the other heatsinks, except for the Nano Silencer, in each test. When you take a look at the size difference between the Micro Silencer and the other heatsinks it was compared to, it should not have been able to beat them or even come close. However, again taking a look at its size, it is able to remove the heat off of the processor better than the stock cooler provided by Intel.
