We have added in results for the Intel Stock Cooler and an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. This will give you an idea of how it performs, compared to other cooling products. The ambient temperature throughout testing was constantly around 26°, only differing by a degree at the most.
For the Stock testing we tested the Z600 with no fans attatched, this gives you a good idea of how it will perform 'out of the box' with just the case fans for airflow.
Here the Z600 pulls out quite a lead. The temperatures raise only a small amount compared to idle, where as the Freezer 7 and Stock cooler go up by quite a margin. A very impressive result for the Z600.
With the CPU now at 3Ghz it was kicking out quite a lot of heat. However, the Z600 (now with fans attached) handled it without breaking into a sweat and easily beat the Freezer 7 by quite a margin; another good result.
Once again the Z600 proved to be extremely capable. It easily beat the Freezer 7 and kept the Q6600 at very reasonable temperatures. The Z600 cooler has proven that it is a very capable partner to a hot running quad-core.
