Scythe Setsugen 2 shows off (updated)

by on29 November 2010



The Catalyst driver does slow down the card under load but we did not find any game which would exceed Furmark's temperatures or fan-speeds. As you can see the stock cooler heats up to 85°C and the fan is very loud - more annoying compared to the Setsugen 2 at full speed.



Even with the lowest setting at 760rpm the Setsugen 2 beats the stock cooler by up to 5°C. All in all, 80°C is safe for GPU standards.



With just 1000rpm the temperature drops another impressive 7°C.



At full speed the Setsugen maxed out at 64°C. But of course, we don't like it that noisy.



With the 25mm fan at 960rpm the Setsugen manged 68°C which is 17°C less compared to the stock cooler.
