Testing of the Cogage Arrow
Over time, we’ve found that we have been able to get a better overclock on our i5 750 at a very respectable voltage of 1.3. We used this for the testing the Arrow. During testing, we allow the system to sit idle for one hour and then measured the temperature. Afterward, we then loaded OCCT and ran a 30 minute bench session with priority set at high and recorded the temps at the end. Each core was recorded for more detailed performance stats.
We have been really fund of the Noctua D14 every since were reviewed it a few months ago. The cooler topped every cooler we have ever tested. But it seems that Thermalright has spoiled Noctua reign at the top of our charts. The Arrow clearly performed equally or outperformed it depending on the core. A degree or two separate the two massive coolers from each other.
