Starting with the stock tests, first we have a look at the temperature performance on the X99 setup. Starting temperature is high, and we need to note, it was one of the hottest days of the year during testing. We mitigated this with regular power downs and ambient temperature checks. However, this would have impacted the results marginally.
The Cryorig H5 Universal CPU cooler hovers around the middle of the group, with 65 Degree C the H5 Universal manages to hold some reasonable temperatures and keep some good company with the Scythe Fuma and the Noctua C14S. Stock sound performance is up next and with the temperature results it’s critical the sound performance is good, leaving enough headroom for a custom fan profile.
