Home > Reviews > Page Title: Final Heatsink Temperature Comparisons

Information not expressly stated in the Final Rise above Ambient Temperature Test Results List concerns the pre-applied thermal pad (we remove this for testing any way), the number of fans on each heatsink, general fan noise and clip force observations, and ambient temperature measurements. As always, FrostyTech's Synthetic Temperature Test results for the Socket 478 Intel Pentium 4 platform are grouped according to the results for the 100W test die.

FrostyTech Synthetic Temperature Heatsink Test Results: *Ranked according to 100W interface die test results.

If you were to compare these test results with that of the NCU-1000 model, you would find there is scant little difference between the two. Using the same test methods; a single 92mm x 92mm low-noise Zalman fan set at 6" and 12" distances from the cooler, the results are within a degree or two of each other on the 100W test. The differences are a little more pronounced for the 50W tests, especially with the fan positioned approximately 12" away from the NCU-2000...

In any case, as you can see from the test results, the stronger the airflow over the fins of the Scythe NCU-2000, the better the heatsink performs. As a passive heatsink, the NCU-2000 has the means to perform very well if there is sufficient internal case airflow. Ultimately, this means that thermal performance ranges from average cooling to satisfactory, all without any extra noise dumped into the PC. As a low noise solution, this potentially makes the Scythe NCU-2000 a desirable product (available online here). But, it all hangs on just how silent those case fans are...
