Noise Level & Cooling Power
The volume of the SilentiumPC Navis EVO ARGB 360 is comparable to other complete water cooling systems. Since the pump is not adjustable, its volume cannot be reduced, unlike the fans. However, it should be clear to everyone that AiO water cooling is not necessarily quieter than a good tower air cooler.
In order to compare the cooling capacity of the Navis EVO ARGB 360 accordingly, we subjected the test system to several load tests on a benchtable.
After a 10-minute idle time, a benchmark market with 3DMark (Time Spy) was carried out. Then Prime95 ran for 20 minutes.
The comparison cooler is an Alpenföhn Brocken 2, which cooled the Intel Core i7-6700K processor to an average of 36.5°C in idle, a maximum of 58°C in the benchmark and 69°C in Prime95.
The SilentiumPC Navis EVO ARGB 360-AiO could even cool the CPU down to an average of 34.5°C in idle mode. In the benchmark, the maximum temperature was 46°C, in Prime95 it rose to 54°C only.
The 360 mm version of the Navis EVO ARGB has thus successfully proven its cooling potential. On average, it was up to 12 degrees cooler than the powerful Brocken 2 from Alpenföhn. That really impressed us.
