CPU Cooler Performance Tier List

Recommended Posts

On 1/31/2018 at 4:30 AM, Princess Cadence said:

I'd assume you're completely disregarding cost-to-benefice and only considering "performance" since the Hyper 212X was cheap enough to me, cools my i7 8700 to 65Cº max load temp while being virtually silent, has good looking parts and is classified as "tier 6" when it was probably the most beneficial purchase for my user-case?

 

See this kind of issue is non-present on the PSU Tier list... I'd give this a second thought.

This Tier List is different to the PSU List because you can't kill your computer off a bad cooler - thank god for thermal shutdown. So it's actually just fine to have a low-tier CPU cooler if you're running a low power CPU or don't overclock. So if you have a locked i7 you don't care that your cooler is Tier 6. I for one have a 212 EVO and my CPU stays at 60C without the fans running for most of my usage of it. Only under stress do the fans actually kick in. Is that a testament to how good the 212EVO is? No, it's a testament to how little heat this locked Xeon dissipates even under stress test.

Hit it out of the park @WoodenMarker. Any cooler I could think of that you may have missed, is right there. Not even the most obscure ones.

Well maybe the Fortis 3 HE1425 is a different model than what you have there.

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/SilentiumPC/Fortis_3_HE1425/

Another tier list I feel compelled to follow now.

Thanks! The HE1425 is what's on the list but I avoid adding entire names to lessen clutter. Updated to add Fortis MCE / V2's, and Fera 2 / 3. The Fortis' all perform effectively the same.

Can you clarify the masterliquid? Why theres Masterliquid pro 120/140 in Tier 2

 

and Tier 5 have the Masterliquid...120 too? Pro is also in there?

 

Another Question added : you say in Tier 5 "High End 120mm" 

This means it stays tier 5 does not mean it's horrible compared to Tier 1. Which there are 240mm and above right?

 

Im confused

Thanks for pointing that out. The 120 Pro should be in just Tier 2 and not 5. I think I accidentally pasted too much when adding the MasterLiquid series. 

As for why the 120 / 140 are in the same tier, they perform similarly partially due to the 120mm rad being considerably thicker than the 140mm rad at 38mm compared to 27mm.

The tier titles are a summary of that category and not a hard rule. I'll add that to the post.

I couldn't find much info on it so it's been added to the 'Currently awaiting more info' section. If you have any helpful articles reviewing the cooler, please send them my way.

Thanks for the helpful feedback!

The Intel ones with the copper slug may be around T9, but I'm sure the others go below T9. As an owner of a Tier 9 cooler (Arctic Freezer 11 LP), the performance between that and the stock Intel cooler (no copper slug) is still night and day. This F11LP runs fans off at everything except 100% CPU load.

fair enough, yea it would help significantly help you with trying to work out what to upgrade to. especially with the AMD spires and wraiths as they are pretty good at cooling and probably higher.

The wraith Spire is probably 8 and the Stealth is probably 9, just based on conjecture though. The "good" wraith is T7, almost for sure since it was tested to match or just lag behind the 212 EVO.

Added: The Wraith / MAX goes into T7 since it's pretty similar to the 212 Evo. The Spire performs similarly to the Hyper T2 and is in T9 along with the Stealth.

https://youtu.be/FpjA3TdF6GE?t=470

I plan to divide T1 and T9 for more granularity but that's going to take some more research--same goes for adding more stock coolers.

Haha, I'd add it to the list if I had a few more test results to go on. It's not that LTT benchmarks aren't reliable but I prefer not to rely on any single benchmark when comparing coolers since many reputable sources tend to have wildly differing results.

I'll look into that after sorting through more coolers that are more worth using. There are many crappy coolers that can fit in that category.

Thanks for catching that! It's fixed to be in T6 and not T5. Also, added Neptwin V2 which is basically the same as the first version but with LED fans.

that's because it's so notable that it deserves two places on the list (even though I haven't heard of it before)

It was probably due to a mix up when sorting both the original Frostwin and the V2 which is a tier above it--might have done that twice.

Thanks for catching that! It's fixed to be in T6 and not T5.

Kind of surprising for a dual tower cooler, but it does look like it's got a meager number of heatpipes / cooling area

Yeah, it may have 120mm fans but the dual towers are similar to those of 92mm heatsink and appearances are deceiving. The weight at 712g is very similar to other coolers in the same tier like the H7 at 711g or Shadow Rock Slim at 730g.

Looking at Deepcool's other dual tower designs like the Neptwin weighing in at 1109g and Lucifer at 1079g, it's not that surprising the Frostwin V2 lags behind.

Ive got a Cryorig R1 Universal with upgraded Phanteks PH-F140 HP II fans, I can confidently state that with proper airflow it deserves a bump to tier 1

Stress Testing with my Ryzen 5 1600X OC - 3.975GHz @1.392V for two hours and it never even hit 70C. See my build log in my signature for details. I installed my buddies Corsair H150i for comparison and it tied.
