Cooling Efficiency and Acoustic Performance
Cooling Efficiency Tests
At first let’s check out the performance of Thermaltake DuOrb cooler with an overclocked processor in an open testbed:

And now let’s see how its rival copes with the same task:
As we see, ZEROtherm cooler won 8ºC from its rival (79ºC vs. 71ºC). With maximum workload the temperature of the CPU under Thermaltake DuOrb increased by another 3ºC inside a closed system case. With ZEROtherm NV120 Premium it increased by 4ºC. So, the final test results look as follows:
You can see from the chart that Thermaltake cooler yielded a lot to the leading super-cooler. Besides, in case of Thermaltake DuOrb we failed to raise the CPU frequency any higher even in an open testbed, where the temperature was relatively low. At the same time, with ZEROtherm NV120 Premium the CPU worked stably at 4020MHz and 1.6125V Vcore.
