Test setup and results …
For the practical test, we have mounted the Cooler Master MA610P on our new AM4 test system, which consists of the following components:
ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4
AMD A8-9600 @ 3.8 GHz with 1.4 volt
Cooler Master Testbench v1.0
For measurement, the following tools were used: Prime95 and SpeedFan
Thermal compound: Cooler Master Mastergel Pro (included)
The ambient temperature during the test was about 21°C.
The Cooler Master MA610P also competes against the AMD Boxed Cooler, but you may also want to check out our recently released test of the Arctic Freezer 12 and the Cooler Master MA410 that was tested under the same conditions and compared the results.
We then used the CPU for 30 minutes with Prime95 and recorded the temperatures.
The Cooler Master MA610P naturally beats the AMD boxed cooler in terms of both temperature and noise level.
The fan volume is measured with a dB meter from 100cm distance. In addition, we determine the respective rotational speed.

Again, the values differ from those of our MA410P and MasterFan test. Cooler Master always seems to tailor the Air Balance design to the respective product.
The fans make a usual good impression. Up to 40% perfect for silent settings, 60% is in the middle range and 80% is a bit louder but still OK. The jump to 100% is then a little bigger, this attitude should be avoided, at least as a silent lover, since the cooling performance does not increase to the same extent. The fan noise is free of disorders.
To be able to estimate the fan noise, there is also a video as usual:
