FrostyTech Mk.II Synthetic Thermal Heatsink Test Results
Intel Pentium D / Extreme Edition & Quad Core class heatsinks tested at 150W
Intel Core 2 Duo / Pentium 4 / Celeron class heatsinks tested at 85W

Results based on readings from a 30x30mm copper interface die with 150W and 85W heat loads applied on the LGA775 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.

*Heatsinks are ranked according to the 150W 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.

The heat output from Intel processors varies widely between single and multi-core processors, so Frostytech tests heatsinks with two thermal values that represent the upper limits of both existing CPU families; 150W and 85W. With a 150W heat load applied by the Intel LGA775 version of FrostyTech's synthetic thermal test platform, the Coolage Freezer Orb heatsink yields a rise above ambient temperature of 32.0°C. At the fan's stock speed of 2800RPM this generates 48.9dBA noise. The CPU equivalent of this test would be an Intel Core 2 Quad, Pentium D/Extreme Edition class processor.

The speed of the 95mm PWM fan is reduced, the Coolage Freezer Orb maintains a temp of 41.6°C over ambient. Noise levels fall to a very quiet 34.1dBA. When faced with a high heat load and the fan in ultra quiet mode, the Freezer Orb FO-Z924AL heatsink is a little underwhelming to be frank. At full speed, the temperature result is fairly average.

Next, the Coolage Freezer Orb heatsink was tested with an 85W heat load; akin to a Core 2 Duo processor. The heatsink achieved a 19.9°C over ambient temperature at default fan speed, and 25.5°C at reduced fan speed. In this case the Coolage Freezer Orb is a little better suited, posting thermal results we would class as good-to-average.

The Coolage Freezer Orb F0-Z924AL heatsink is perhaps most hampered by its compact size, this limits it in comparison to the tower heatsinks that dominate Frostytech reference list above. Ultimately, Coolage's Freezer Orb heatsink proves itself to be an average-to-satisfactory heatsink. It will get the job done at full fan speed without excessive noise, but if your computer case can accommodate a slightly larger heatsink you can achieve much better results.
