After prepping everything up, I booted the system and kept it in Idle for about 30 minutes. Afterwards, I prepared a number of load-tests (such as Prime95, and Furmark), and then I waited for the machine to return to idle. I noted the highest CPU temperature, comparing the differences with other air-coolers, including the stock AMD one, Xigmatek Aegir, and the Akasa Nero LX.
The temperature was registered by RealTemp 3.7 and SpeedFan 4.49. The room temperature was kept at a stable 26°C.
