For our temperature tests we loaded the system for 15 minutes using Prime 95 and recorded the CPU temperature using CPUID HWMonitor. We then restarted the system and left it idling at the desktop for 15 minutes before recording temperatures. Room temperature was maintained at 18 degrees Celsius for the duration of the tests.
While the H110 doesn’t have a large lead over the H100i in terms of absolute temperatures, it’s very important to consider the noise emitted by the fans under the test conditions. These are detailed on the next page.
