Asus Triton 81 Skt1366 CPU Cooler

Test Results

Test Results

I ran the test at both stock settings and overclocked settings in both idle and load conditions to best simulate the working environment of a Home/Office PC.

Stock Settings

The idle temperatures were taken 10 minutes into Windows Vista and CPU load was checked using Windows Task Manager. The Load temp was taken through Realtemp 2.70 and was the maximum recorded temperature during 5 runs of IntelBurn Test 1.6.






Overclocked Settings

The idle temperatures were taken 10 minutes into windows Vista and CPU load was checked using Windows Task manager. The Load temp was taken through Realtemp 2.70 and was the maximum recorded temperature during 5 runs of IntelBurn Test 1.6.

Let's head over to the conclusion where I gather my thoughts on the Asus Triton 81...
