Thermolab Nano Silencer Review

Testing:  

To properly test the Thermolab Nano Silencer, I will need to record temperatures during idle time (little to no CPU usage), as well as during full load (100% CPU usage). I will be using SpeedFan 4.33 to report the temperatures of the CPU cores. I will be using OCCT to simulate a full CPU load, and will run it for 30 minutes. I will let the computer sit and cool down for 30 minutes before recording the idle temperatures. I will be testing the processor at stock speeds with stock voltage settings, as well as overclocked speeds at 3.6GHz with the voltage increased to 1.46 volts. All 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
  • OS: Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Ambient Temperature: 22.6 degrees Celsius

 

Comparison Heatsinks:

 

 

 

 

As you can see, Thermolab's Nano Silencer was outperformed by the other heatsinks in each test. By comparison, the competing heatsinks are giants and should outperform the Nano Silencer - which, for its size, can dissipate heat better than the stock cooling solution.
