Using our large Noctua D15 CPU cooler, our idle temperatures was a super cool 30 degrees Celsius. Now that’s really cool! (pardon the pun).
Our load temperatures was extremely low at only 54 degrees Celsius. This is all thanks to the large Noctua D15 CPU cooler, plus the fact the Ryzen 5 2600X only has a TDP of 95W.
