We use Cinebench R23 multicore (stability test), for CPU thermal testing. This provides worse case scenario for given CPUs thermal output.
The IS-55 is LP cooler that has been designed with focus on LGA1700 & AM5. It has good build quality and simple; effective mounting system.
In pursuit of performance, the IS-55 has a downside, which limits RAM or motherboard I/O shield compatibility height to 33mm. This rules out using the I/O side on majority of LGA1700 & AM5 motherboards. It also has very limited RAM compatibility list for both DDR4 & DDR5.
