Frostytech's socket LGA2011 Intel synthetic thermal test platform stresses socket LGA2011/1366 compatible heatsinks with a 200W heat load. Keep in mind that the AMD Integrated Heat Spreader and Intel LGA2011 Integrated Heat Spreader both measure ~38x38mm, so these test results can be extrapolated to AMD processor scenario's as well.
With a 200W heat load applied by the Intel LGA2011/1366 version of FrostyTech's synthetic thermal test platform, the Coolermaster Hyper D92 heatsink yields an average temperature result of 24.1°C over ambient at stock fan speed (2x 2800RPM / 53.4dBA).
Reducing the speed of its twin 92mm PWM fans to 800RPM causes test temperatures to jump to a poor 47.1°C over ambient. Clearly, the heatsink is starved for airflow when both fans are slowed this much but otherwise the Hyper D92 doesn't have any difficulties on the 200W test platform at stock fan speed.
Ultimately, Coolermaster's Hyper D92 put its best fin forward when its two 92mm fans are spinning at 2800RPM. Slowing the fans down to 800RPM will make the Hyper D92 nearly inaudible, but hampers the thermal performance of this semi-compact cooler. At stock fan speed the 147mm tall Coolermaster Hyper D92 performs to an average level on all three synthetic thermal test platforms; not the best thermal results nor lowest noise output, but not bad either.
