For testing thermal capability we manually overclocked Intel i9-9900K upto 5GHz and stressed the CPU using AIDA64 for 10 minutes. To average out we took three readings with 15 minutes of system idle time in between every reading. We compared CORSAIR H150i ELITE CAPELLIX CPU cooler (CORSAIR iCUE software profile set to â€˜Balanced') with few of known AIOs, Air coolers and a custom LC solution.
