The test: In the test of the Thermalright Ultima-90l cooler, we will measure the temperature of an Intel Core2Duo E6600 in idle and load mode. Besides that the cooler will be tested with different fan speeds and passively. The Thermalright Ultima-90l cooler will be tested in the following setup.
• Asus P5K-E • Intel Core2Duo E6600 • 2 stk. Corsair CMX21024-6400C4 • 2 stk. WD 2500KS • Asus 8800GTS 640MB • Corsair HX620W • Lian li PC05A B
In the test we look at the Thermalright Ultima-90l’s performance when installed with a 92mm fan. For optimal comparison of different coolers, we always use Artic cooling MAX-2 cooling paste. First we have a look at the CPU without any load:
The Thermalright Ultima-90l cooler is performing surprisingly well, placed in the top and able to keep up with much bigger and heavier coolers. It will be exciting to see if the Thermalright Ultima-90l will perform as well when we put some load on the system.
