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.
In these tests we can see how the H100i offers a significant performance advantage over the H100 when configured with the same fans. We will examine how the different fan configurations performed acoustically in the next section.
