Q6600 Temperature Testing

Idle Temperatures

As we saw with the dual core results, as the thermal loads go up so does the efficiency of this unit. This is great to see as it is the mark of a great cooler that can handle both low thermal loads and high thermal loads with aplomb.

Average Load Temperatures

Wow, in the end and after all the dust settled this cooler is basically just as good as a some of the best coolers we have tested in the past. This alone is very impressive, but when you realize that this Xigmatek unit costs less than half of some of the competition it gets down right amazing.
