    Testing Against:

    The Results:

    The Aero 7+ and the SLK-900A both ran exceptional Idle and Full load temperatures. The SLK-900A beating the Aero7+ at 36 C to 40 C respectively and even more so after running Prime95, SETI@home, and 3dMark2001 SE for 5 loops at an amazing 41 C at full load and 45 C for the Aero 7+. Both fans were running at 2600rpm, as it is an optimal speed between silence and performance.
