The Prolimatech 81 performed reasonably well at stock, giving the lovely Cryorig H7 a good run for its money and keeping up with the NZXT Kraken X31 AIO water cooler.
Acoustic levels aren’t too bad either, certainly an audible fan there, but it’s not to the point where I would consider it a problem.
Temps aren’t great here, but still keeping ahead of some very popular and more expensive products from be quiet! but then again, it’s not as quiet as the be quiet! products, so it can’t win every battle here.
What is good, is that the cooler didn’t get much louder, even at full load on an overclocked CPU. It’s about as good as you’re going to get without moving into enthusiast air coolers such as the be quiet! range.
