Testing is carried out on BC1 Mini v2 (open testbench), using the following hardware, in 20°C ambient room temperature. We noise normalised the cooler fan speed to 35dBA at distance of 50cm. This helps eliminate brute force cooling from higher RPM fans.

We use Cinebench R23 multicore (stability test), for period of 30 minutes. This provides worse case scenario for a given CPU. CPU coolers are tested across range of CPU’s for data validation and to reduce risk of errors in testing. This also helps account for variables between CPU platforms.


Thermalright’s AXP120-X67 has reasonable build quality and effective mounting solution. The stock fan reached around 40dB at full load (1900RPM). Thermalright’s AXP120-X67 is an excellent alternative to Noctua’s NH-L12S and offers better performance than the L12 Ghost Edition. The AXP120-X67 is also available in black.
