Testing PC:

Intel i3 540 @3,06 [OC1 @ 4,14 GHz , OC2 @ 4,57 GHz]
Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4
G. Skill DDR3 2x2GB Trident Series 2000MHz
HDD Western Digital Black 1TB
MSI GTX460,
Corsair TX650 PSU

Software:

Operating system Windows 7, 64-bit
AIDA64 Extreme Edition

Thermal Paste:

Supplied EVERCOOL thermal compound

All the tests were performed inside a open case, the Gigabyte Aurora 3D enclosure with 4 x 120mm fans installed (2 * input, 2 * output).

Ambient temperature during testing was 27-28 °C.

First, I will test the system at default CPU speed at idle by leaving it sitting for 30 minutes. Then I will perform a load test at default CPU speed using AIDA64 Extreme Edition for 30 min also. I will use AIDA64 System Stability test to monitor the temperatures.

I will then over clock to 4.14 GHz ( + 1.080 GHz) and perform the tests again. Then I will over clock even more to 4.57 GHz with voltage near dangerous 1.4 V.

For comparison purposes we’ve tested the Evercool Transformer 4 alongside the following CPU coolers:

* Intel retail i3-540 cooler,
* Spire TherMax Eclipse II,
* Thermaltake Jing.

Except the Intel retail cooler, all these coolers utilize Heatpipe Direct Touch (H.D.T.) technology and work in a ‘push-pull’ setup, however the TherMax Eclipse II has one advantage, it has five heat pipes and the rest competitors have only four.

Let the games begin! Graph 1 and 2 show the average temperatures. Intel retail i3-540 cooler wasn’t tested at 4.57 GHz; however it was cappable to finish the AIDA64 stability test at 4.14 GHz.
