ThermoLab BADA Review



Testing the ThermoLab BADA begins with installation. Once the mounting bracket and arms were installed, I added thermal paste to the heat pipe gaps and then some to the CPU IHS. The heat sink was then plugged in and bolted to the motherboard. Testing occurs in two phases – idle and load, and at two speeds – stock (2.66GHz) and overclocked (3.33GHz) CPU speeds. Each run is tested for thirty minutes apiece and the temperatures are then averaged out and reported in the graphs below for comparison against other heat sinks.

Testing System:


Comparison Heat sinks:







At stock CPU speeds, the BADA performed very well at load and average at idle. The results are similar for the overclocked CPU testing with the BADA coming within 1 degree of the best performing heat sink – the Fenrir.
