FrostyTech Mk.II Synthetic Thermal Heatsink Test Results
AMD Athlon64 / FX / X2 & Sempron class heatsinks
Results based on readings from a 38x38mm copper interface die with 125W heat load on the K8 version of the Mk.II Test Platform. Temperature results listed for each heatsink were calculated by determining the rise over ambient temperatures at time of test. Information on Frostytech's test methodology is available here.

125W Thermal Test (°C) Noise Level (dBA)
*Heatsinks are ranked according to the 125W Thermal Test results column (rise over ambient temp.). Low temperatures with low noise levels are considered best. For reference heatsinks with variable-speed fans, only the high speed (12V) fan test result is included in the comparison sheet; more detailed results reside in each specific heatsink review.

With a 125W heat load applied by the AMD K8 version of the FrostyTech synthetic thermal test platform, the Xigmatek AIO-S80DP heatsink yields an excellent rise above ambient temperature result of 30.7°C, at its stock fan speed of 3600RPM (55.0 dBA). When we manually force the AIO-S80DP's 80mm PWM fan to spin down by reducing voltage, to 1800RPM, the heatsink maintains a temperature of 39.5°C above ambient. Noise levels fall slightly, to 46.9 dBA from 55.0 dBA.

The fan and pump have separate power lines, so we can reduce fan speed by adjusting voltage without impacting the fluid flow of the pump itself. We'll hold off on our final judgement of the Xigmatek AIO-S80DP until the socket 775 thermal test results are in. That's next...
