Titan Dragonfly 4 Testing:

Testing of the Dragonfly 4 will be accomplished by installing the cooler into the test system case, rather than a test bench. Most systems are built and mounted into a sealed (relatively) chassis, so this method will be used to generate the load and idle results to give a real world view as to what kind of cooling performance one can expect, based on the test system listed below. Of course, your results may vary by several degrees due to case design and ambient air temperature. The CPU load is generated by Prime 95 version 27.9 for a period of two hours, with a cooldown period of one hour after the computer has returned to an idle state. Real Temp 3.70 is used to log the temperatures with the highest and lowest averages across the four cores of the Core i7 4770K test CPU. Ambient temperatures are kept at 24 °C during the testing to minimize the effect of temperature variations. Each cooler is tested with the manufacturer supplied thermal compound as delivered.

At idle, the Dragonfly 4 was able to keep my CPU at 29 °C and 35 °C for overclocked idle, which is at the high end of the comparison field. That field contains coolers much larger and costing much more than the Dragonfly 4. Now when you get to the overclocked results, again the Dragonfly 4 is at the high end, with 70 °C at stock speeds and 92 °C when overclocked. What this means to me is that the Dragonfly is well-suited for normal use, but perhaps a little on the weak side for overclocking. Regarding fan noise, I heard none at all from within the chassis.
