The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 24c – a comfortable environment for the majority of people reading this.Idle temperatures were measured after sitting at the desktop for 30 minutes. Load measurements were acquired by playing Crysis Warhead for 30 minutes and measuring the peak temperature. We also have included Furmark results, recording maximum temperatures throughout a 30 minute stress test. All fan settings were left on automatic.
The we noted earlier in the review, the cooler isn’t as impressive as the Twin Frozr fitted to the MSI GTX 750 Ti. This directly translates into a noticeable temperature difference between the cards. The MSI solution runs at 49c under load when gaming, and the Palit card 57c. Still, these are impressive results.
