All temperature charts are sorted with lowest load temperatures at the top.
Perhaps as expected, performance is very middle of the road – the Windale 4 is neither the best nor the worst cooler we have tested. Considering its $32.99 MSRP, I would say its results are definitely solid. However, the Cryorig H7 is the better performer and is available for a very similar price.
Considering both the Windale 4 and Windale 6 use the same fan (though the Windale 4 unit does not have the integrated LEDs) it is not a surprise that both emit similar noise levels. This means the Windale 4 is generally pretty quiet, and is certainly inaudible at idle. It does ramp up when the system comes under heavy load, but the fan is still relatively innocuous thanks to its 1600 rpm max speed.
