Let’s take a look below and see how our PH-TC90LS Cooler from Phanteks performs.
It’s a hot day today and my ambient temps are at 82 degrees Fahrenheit or 28 degrees Celsius. Idle Stock settings were showing our average low temp at 35 Celsius and 42.5 Celsius max and considering this test is done in a closed case environment and not an open test bench the results obtained are great.
Here we have our loaded states at stock settings of 3.3 where we ran Prime95 for 10 minutes at 100% load showing a low of 35 degrees Celsius and an average high of 71 degrees Celsius at stock settings. These are very impressive scores for a cooler this size and well within the threshold of the 2500K.
