Testing

When testing Thor's Hammer and the other heatsinks I used Prime95 v25.9 to achieve full load when testing load temps while both overclocked or stock. To get temperatures during testing I used RealTemp v3.00. When idle testing I left the system sit and remain idle for up to thirty minutes after which I recorded the temp at the time. When testing for load temps I would allow the system to remain at full load for up to an hour and then record temps. As a bonus I included tests done with fans. For fans I used two Scythe Kaze Jyunis (110CFM @ 37dbA).

 

Testing Setup:

Comparison Heatsink:

  • ThermalRight Ultra Extreme 120
  • Kingwin XT-1264
  • CM Hyper 212 Plus

 

 

 

 

Lower Temperatures = Better

 

Wow, Thor's Hammer did pretty well. It even bested the TRUE by one degree though in only one test. All other tests it kept up pretty well. I was amazed by how well it worked passively too. So I would definitely have to say that if you're looking for a decent silent setup, Thor's Hammer would be the way to go.
