Blenders BWM render also revealed some promising results, with our 1950X overclocked 61.7 degrees, and at stock 35.5 degrees. Our testing results fell basically in line with our expectations.
The larger cooler and fan sizes providing lower temps when compared to the smaller NH-U12S TR4, but the Dark Rock Pro 4 still sits in first place, thanks to its significantly larger size, and dual fan configuration.
Audible noise though was very impressive. At 45 dBa, the NH-U14S TR4 was almost just as quiet as the Dark Rock Pro 4 and sits in second place. There is, of course, the low noise adapter included which wasn’t used during testing, but this could always be installed for even quieter operation – albeit it with slightly worse cooling performance.
