Review: CPU cooling in style



We used EVGA’s X58 FTW3 motherboard and a Core i7 930 CPU in our Obsidian 800D case. The case had three default fans running at 900RPM in a room with average temperature at 22°C. We used Prime95 (Small FFT) to put a 100% load on all Core i7 930’s cores, so bear in mind that we’re talking about a scenario that will most probably never happen.We measured temperatures on all four cores and put average values in the tables. We used Gelid’s GC Extreme paste.

Jing comes with two Thermaltake TTE122712LS fans, which run from 800 to 1300RPM and come with RPM regulation. Jing’s fans are pretty loud at 1300RPM but barely audible at about 800RPM. As the results show, it’s not so much a difference in performance as it is in the noise levels. Still, if you’re an overclocker we’d advise you to not mind your ears and lengthen your CPU’s life instead.

Jing didn't manage to win, but that's not an easy task considering the competition. Indeed, the competition is as fierce as it gets and with this in mind, Jing has done pretty well.
