Testroutine

The CPU is being evaluated using the monitoring software available in the AI Suite II from Asus and with Prime95 we reach nearly 100% load on the CPU. For measuring the noise level we use a Voltcraft SL-200 decibel meter, which is positioned one meter from the CPU cooler with the fan mounted.

  • PWM idle & load
  • 12 volts idle & load
  • 7 volts load
