Scythe Yasya SCYS-1000 CPU Cooler Review - Testing

 

For testing, we will be testing using an Intel Q6700 Processor at stock speeds at 2.66GHz using Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal paste.

For comparison, results for a Zalman CNPS 9700 CPU Cooler.

 

Idle Testing

For idle testing, we booted up the system, allowed the CPU to stabilized at below 2% usage, and then tested for 10 minutes, and we used RealTemp to record the CPU temperatures.

Load Testing

For our load tests, we used Prime95 to stress the CPU to 100%, and let it run that way for one hour, and then use RealTemp to record the temperatures

Results

As you can see, the Yasya was marginally warmer during idle, but gave fairly substantial gains during load.  This shows how the Yasya's innovative fin design helps efficiently wick away heat, and the advantages of this design become greater as processor temperatures get higher, which becomes critical in squeezing every last drop out of your CPU's overclock.
