    So can someone beep whoever tested it to get em to redo it if the profile thingy is right ? The test is useless if it's true. Going to need verification from tester though

    An update.

    Both coolers were evaluated in their out-of-the-state. It's an apple-to-apple comparison.

    While the default Corsair profile is quiet, the Noctua was set to silent in the Asus BIOS.

    While I agree with the apples to apples assessment, I think it'd be worthwhile showing what the coolers are capable of. Out of the box is the basic scenario, and I'd wager applies to barely anyone. Nobody is rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishing this much cash on a cooler (either one) and just going "welp it's installed, time to call it a day". Especially if they have one of the higher end chips - if something is pushed to shutdown, you change the settings.

    I don't mean to come off unduly harsh or critical, I just suck at getting my point across in a non-git way via text.

    IME asus motherboards (specifically my one running fan expert 2+) mandate that fan curves end at 100% PWM at 100 C chip temperature, and the "silent" profile pre-loaded on mine has the fans getting to 100% at just 75 C (not very silent). If the chip was getting to the point of shutdown, the motherboard will already be giving the cooler all it's got

    I had the beige one and I loved it to bits but it was straining the ASUS mobo I had at the time, so I went with a NXT Kraken X62, but the software was faulty; so I had to return it. I then settled on an AIO from Be Quiet! which I really loved, but then they stopped making them for some reason; I still have that thing cooling my OCed 5930, it has never missed a beat in years *touch wood*
