Idle temperatures are slightly higher than other similar heatsinks, this is because with the fan connected via PWM, it only spins at 221RPM! Excellent for keeping a computer quiet while Idle. The temperature doesn’t rise much with the fan reaching just 1005 RPM, I couldn’t hear it over my hard drives.

Pushed to 4.0GHz the fan sits at 363 RPM which is still very low and reaches its full speed of 1486RPM which is mostly just a blowy noise and was certainly bearable.
