Idle temperatures were the most impressive. With standard Cryo Cooling enabled, we managed to get a really low temperature reading of only 21 degrees Celsius. But take a look at the HWMonitor screenshot … it shows each of the cores falling to single digits, some reaching zero degrees Celsius!
Even more impressive are the idle temperatures at Unregulated. We managed to get the CPU temps down to 4 degrees Celsius … with HWMonitor showing each of the cores falling to minus double digits! I was a little worried at this point as I know condensation will form at these low temperatures. I immediately switched to standard Cryo Cooling after 10 minutes of Unregulated.
WARNING … we recommend you use ONLY Cryo Cooling option and do NOT use Unregulated option if you do not know what you are doing. Condensation may void your warranty and damage your hardware.
Full Load Temps
During our full load stress test, the CPU temperatures reached a high of only 65 degrees Celsius, with standard Cryo Cooling enabled. For Unregulated, we managed to get a max load temperature of only 64 degrees Celsius. Now that’s pretty impressive!
Using Intel’s Extreme Tuning Utility (XTC), we managed to overclock the Intel Core i9-10900K to 5.5GHz on all cores with no issues at all. The Cryo Cooling feature manages to cool the processor to 19 degrees Celsius on idle. While full load temps reached a high of only 65 degrees Celsius for both standard Cryo Cooling and Unregulated.
Disclaimer: Overclocking is never guaranteed, so the results may vary depending on certain conditions and various hardware configurations. I am not recommending overclocking if you do not know what are you doing. High voltages may damage hardware and it will not be covered by warranty.
