From such a large cooler of course you would expect a brutal cooling performance. Whether with the cooler this expectation is justified, we now clarify for you.
Test Setup …
As a test system, the following configuration is used: Intel Core i7 2600K @ 4012 MHz with 1.19 Volt Asus P8P67 Pro Rev 3.1 4x 4 GB DDR3-1600 MSI GeForce 780ti Seasonic Platinum 760 Watt PSU CM Storm Stryker case Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Service Pack 1
Following testing software is used: Prime95 V27.9 Core Temp 1.0 RC6 Asus AiSuite2
Thermal compound:Cooler Master X1 Extreme Fusion 9,5W/mK.
It’s hot outside ! A quote that everyone has heard often in the last days. But since these are not fair start conditions for our cooler, we retreated into the quiet air-conditioned room, and tested our system at 20 °C room temperature. Starting in Silent mode, we came to the turbo mode and heated the CPU with Prime95.

In operation, the H2O 1250 could quite convince, therefore we present you to visualize this cooler Chart.
With maximum speed to be heard clearly though, but the H2O 1250 noise is still far away from a jet engine. The cooling performance is comparable with other dual-radiator coolers.
