Review: Silence is not golden, it's black


Testing


Motherboard:
MSI P35 Platinum (Provided by MSI)

Processor:
Intel Core 2 Extreme x6800, 2x 2.93GHz   (Provided by Intel)

Memory:
A-Data Extreme DDR2 800 (2x1GB) (Provided by A-Data)

Graphics Card:
EVGA Geforce 260 GTX  (Provided by EVGA)

PSU:
OCZ GXS 700, 700 W (Provided by OCZ)

CPU-Cooling:
Cooler Master Hyper Z600 (passive) (Provided by Cooler Master)

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.

Image

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.
