Hmmm. He've mounted it using skybrackets


I'm not sure why result are so different and I'm confused to be honest.
I’m thinking to do something similar in my Skyreach 4 mini. What do you guys think of using a Dynatron K129 with the Noctua A12x15 on the Sky Bracket. I may add washers on the mounting screws to position the fan flush with the K129.

About the sticky, I think this thread should be left as a discussion, and another thread should be started and locked, with only the original post being updated with benchmarks.

I think the dynatron would be a bad fit for a bigger fan. It looks very dense and the openness of a big fan would allow the air to flow around it. Just a guess.

My suggestion for graphs, but there is so much work to do:
Code:
XTU     55W/65W/80W
Prime95 70W/95W/120W
 Quiet mode       A9x14 FAN       Max Fan
cooler1 %fan     cooler1         cooler1 ?dB
cooler2 %fan     cooler1  LN     cooler2 ?dB
cooler3 %fan     cooler2         cooler3 ?dB
cooler4 %fan     cooler2  LN     cooler4 ?dB
And instead 100%/50% Fan => delta t°C/height in cm

End of Year Top 100 Low Profile and SFF CPU air coolers!! XD
That would actually be very entertaining. If we put a different cooler on each page like a lot of the click-bait websites we'd get tons of ad hits.

"You won't believe how awful some CPU coolers can be!"
- 100 pages of CPU cooler reviews.

BTW there wont be much update over the next two weeks (and hasnt been much in the last few weeks either). Unfortunately I cannot continue the China Desk as I am returning to the US on June 11.
There is some changes to look forward to however:

SHORT TERM
  • New testbench, Z370 + 8700k
  • More coolers coming (moving to US means I have access to more products!)
  • A new sticky post on the forum with a list of updates from me, as well as a list of coolers to be tested, votes on what should be a priority
LONG TERM
  • Webpage so you can sort through coolers and compare my results, with pictures and audio clips
  • Comparison articles on thermal pastes, cooler orientations, and hopefully certain cases (as requested by many)

I may need some help with some of the long term work, I'm planning to do something similar to what CC Ricers is doing and Hardware Pick - but focused only on CPU Coolers for now.

Thanks again @IntoxicatedPuma for doing this and well have a pretty definitive list of performance to height.
