Cooler Master Hyper Z600 CPU Cooler

Test Results

Test Results

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.
 
As you can see, the Z600 sits pretty much in the middle of the group here, however, since it is completely silent the results are rather good.


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.

Could you give temps with the two fans attached @ 1.4v?Quote

Haven't gotten a chance to read through it yet, but something to mention is that on the graphs themselves the stock ones should explicitly say it was run passive and the OC'ed ones should explicitly say run with fans. Tons of people who look up cooler reviews only look at the graphs and don't actually read any of the review itself.Quote

It should be pretty similar, the Z600 handles extra heat extremely well. I cant really go testing for everyones individual set ups, otherwise It would take years. But if you are after a top notch HSF, the z600 is the one

There is the little text before the graphs, and hopefully people will look accross at them. I dont think there is enough room on the graphs themselves to add in "@ passive" or "@ Load". But I will have to wait for Jim on that oneQuote

I misread the latter text and thought that it was still passive when OCed.Quote
