In order to test the thermals, we used Prime 95 to put our CPU through its paces and compared the results to those scored by Cooler Master's HAF922.
Idle operation sees FenrisWolf emerging much quieter than Cooler Master's HAF922, but as you all know, silence and performance rarely go together. The two fans in Scythe's case are not enough for a high end processor and passive cooling, but it should be enough for an average CPU with active CPU cooling.
