So I've completed the tests and frankly... I'm surprised by the results. I really didn't expect the cooler to produce such high temperatures with no fan.

i7 950@ stock IDLE

i7 950@ stock MAX LOAD

5429573563_155b60734a_b.jpg

For anyone who can't read the temperatures - at idle, the cpu stabilized at roughly 43C. Thats not too bad. However, when the CPU was subjected to a maximum load, the cooler failed horribly. The CPU temperatures kept going up and up until it hit the low 90's. I was forced to cancel test because I didn't want to risk the CPU getting damaged due to excessive heat.

Conclusion: DON'T run your archon without a fan... Its generally not a good idea. The only situation where i can think that this is feasible is in a small computer that doesn't go anywhere close to max load.

Also, keep in mind that these tests were done in a Cooler Master HAF 932 case with the stock fans. The side panel was closed, but all other fans were on.

Hmm. Now I'll have to try my Z600R and my Armageddon fanless in my case.

Oh. That's kind of disappointing. :/

I'll run mine passively after I finish reading a few things.

Thanks for the update on fanless Archon, quite surprising to see how bad it performs, looks like HR-02 is the way to go for fanless.

But this is important? if you not use it without fan.

No, it's not important. It'd just be fun/funny to figure out. And if it was good at it, that'd be nice to find out.

Its not really important per se, but rather something that seems interesting. I was actually expecting the cooler to hold off on its own for a while considering its size... But like they say, size isn't everything.

I had some interesting results.
I ran 5 loops of IBT at high at stock settings in the BIOS. I left 5 minutes before and after to get accurate idle temps.

With a single TY-140

Passive

Not too shabby.
Idle temps are pretty much the same, plus or minus a few degrees. Under load, it isn't any better (performance wise) than the stock cooler (in my experience). But, I did see quite a lot of dust, so I could run it again in a few days once I get my new case.

I am kind of curious to see how well it'd work @ 3.6Ghz (since i only need +0.012v for it to be stable). But I don't really need to. I found out what the loud fan is when I idle. It's my case fans. -_-

I hope you guys enjoyed. Desktop cat approves. ^_^

E/ So I just got done playing L4D2 for about an hour.
Pretty good temps for being passive, imo.

In my setup, adding the 2nd TY-140 dropped my load temps by another 2C or so. Highly recommended for those trying to get the most out of their setup. For those not pushing to the limits, completely unnecessary. tongue.gif
