Now let me talk about performance. First I tested temperatures with the CPU at >1% and 100% CPU usage. The idle temperatures were taken after letting the computer boot and then leaving it idle for 15 minutes. After recording that temperature, the CPU was stressed at 100% for another 15 minutes and then temperature was recorded. Finally, the CPU load was removed then the time it took to return to idle temperature was timed.
These results are actually very impressive. These coolers are much, much quieter than the Dragon Orb 3 but cool nearly as well. I should note that the Tundra tended to fluctuate between 41 and 42 at full load and wasn't 'solidly' on 42 C.
I'll be the first to admit this test is not completely flawless. The ambient temperature tends rise a tad and sometimes makes the cooler take longer to dissipate it's heat. For the most part, however, this test shows some nice results for the Tundra 2, which is also a quieter cooler than the Avalanche.
