Max OC Testing
For our Max OC testing, we have configured our CPU to run 4700MHz on all cores, set the voltage to 1.25V, and configured memory to XMP mode. This yields an approximate power at the wall of 600w under load (a 500w differential from idle, which pulls about 100w). This results in the CPU running at 4.7GHz on all cores during the looping rounds of Cinebench R20. The only test that completed without throttling was the Max Fans and 100% pump speed test. You can read more about this in our introduction article here.
Max Fans – 100% Pump Speed
With each AIO working as hard as possible, the Enermax LIQTECH II 360 produced a temperature of 95 degrees Celsius and the Corsair H115i Platinum hit 96 degrees Celsius. The AQUAFUSION 240, though, joined our thermal throttling group. While this result is considered a failure, the other contestants didn’t leave any room for error with their temperatures.
Now that we have seen how all of our units cool, lets see if we can still hear!
