CPU Test Results
Our first batch of results come form the real world CPU tests. The temperatures were taken at Idle and load conditions and at stock and overclocked states. The overclock used was 3.6ghz @ 1.4v.
As you can see the Domino's quiet mode was letting things get a little toasty. There was a massive difference in the stock and overclocked states with this cooler, as you can see from the graph the loaded stock result matched the idle overclocked state! That being said though, only the overclocked load state was really concerning. Letting a chip reach 72°C on a daily basis may not be in it's best interests.
Moving up to the balanced mode. The temperatures start to look a bit more promising. Dragging the loaded overclocked temperature down by 4°C to a more acceptable level. A slightly lesser drop on the stock idle and overclocked load temperatures, coming in at 3° cooler, but still neck and neck. Then lastly only a 1°C drop off the stock idle temperature.
The last graph for the CPU tests shows us the temperatures for the Domino's performance mode. Here temperatures are really looking quite appealing. It managed to hold the hottest of the settings to only 2°C above 60°. Also this was the only setting at which the overclocked idle state didn't match the loaded stock. Lastly the coolest setting, stock idle, was given to be nearly the same as the ambeint temperature, which is quite impressive.
Simulated Load Test
For the simulated load tests the coolit was run at it's highest setting, to keep it on par with the other coolers tested who had their fans run at full whack. The points of 50, 100, 150 and 200 watts were used and ambient temperature throughout testing was 20°C (+/- 0.5°C).
These results speak for themselves. The Domino running at full has outperformed everything tested so far on the load simulator by a good margin. the most impressive being under 50°C on the 200w test.
