BOX CONTENTS

Included in the box, we have the cooler, mounting brackets for both Intel/AMD and user manual.

TESTING

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.

BENCHMARKS

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.

CONCLUSIONS

Thermalright’s AXP90-X47 Full, is one of, it not the best 47mm tall low profile coolers currently available. In our testing, we found the cooler performed better with heatpipes orientated towards the motherboard I/O shroud and RAM.

We’ve determined, this is due to cold plate design in relation to LGA1700 & AM5 CPUs. In the second other orientation, the AXP90 coolers perform far worse.
