The Hyper 212 in all of its glowing glory.
Have a look at the Benchmark platform:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 (2.93GHz, 4MB L2, 1066MHz)
Kingston KHX10000D3LLK2 2GB Kit @ 6-6-6-15, DDR2-1000MHz
ASUS EN8600 GT 256MB
Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 80GB SATA
Stock Intel HSF
Silverstone Zeus 650W
BioStar TP35D3-A7 Deluxe
In this test, the Coolermaster Hyper 212 will be going against the ZeroTherm BTF80 and the stock default QX6850 heatsink.
For the actual benchmark itself, Coretemp is used to measure the 4 core on-die temperatures probes, CPUBurn is ran with 4 instances to maximise the load of all 4 cores of the QX6850 to ensure maximum heat generated.
Note: As there is an issue with the QX6850 detection with the Coretemp, the CPUID showed is different and voltage detection is inaccurate.
Next up, benchmarks…
