Performance Testing

 

System Config

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X

Motherboard: Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming

RAM: 32GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200Mhz

GPU: Galax GTX 1070 HOF

SSD: Samsung 960 PRO 2TB

OS: Windows 10 Professional X64

Cooling: Corsair H100i PRO
 

We’ll test our CPU at stock under the different performance profiles so you can get a sense of how each performs.

 Zero RPM Mode

This mode is pretty self-explanatory, the fans are shut off completely and the pump is reduced to its minimum speed of around 1100 RPM. Once the coolers liquid reaches 40C, the fans will start up and the pump will jump to a faster speed and both will ramp up as needed to maintain temps. You don’t have to worry about overheating here, and it makes the Cooler incredibly quiet, great for things like watching movies where the load is reasonably low.

Quiet Mode

Fans: ~400 RPM
Pump: ~1100RPM
On quiet mode for 10 minutes, our 2700X CPU at stock runs at around 36C minimum. Running 10 loops of Cinebench, we see the peak temp climb to 67C. The system is running very quietly, almost inaudible.

Balanced Mode

Fans: ~500 RPM
Pump: ~2100RPM
On quiet mode for 10 minutes, our 2700X CPU at stock runs at around 33C minimum. Running 10 loops of Cinebench, we see the peak temp climb to 61C. There is very little noise increase at this point.

Extreme Mode

Fans: ~1400 RPM
Pump: ~2850RPM
On quiet mode for 10 minutes, our 2700X CPU at stock runs at around 30C minimum. Running 10 loops of Cinebench, we see the peak temp climb to 58C. There is a slightly noticeable sound now on an open test bench, but with almost any ambient noise, you can’t hear it. It would be pretty near silent in a closed case.
