Thermaltake DuOrb CPU Cooler
Let's see how DuOrb CPU performs in the silent mode (conditionally noiseless domain, reference noise - 23 dBA).

Chart 2. Thermal resistance (conditionally noiseless domain)
As we can see, the cooler demonstrates favorable results -- DuOrb CPU does not catch up with the champions, but it's still rather robust, outperforming Big Typhoon models and getting close to MaxOrb and Scythe Mugen. That's some serious success for a cooler with such a compact low-profile configuration.
Now let's have a look at the situation in the low-noise domain, where we selected not only High-End products, but also several Mid-End products -- Cooler Master Hyper TX2, GlacialTech Igloo 5750 PWM, and Scythe Mine Rev. B.

Chart 4. Thermal resistance (low-noise domain)
Quite respectable results again: DuOrb CPU catches up with MaxOrb and gets close to Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B and Mugen. To all appearances, the on-board fans finally start to operate in their nominal mode, providing acceptable ventilation to the fin-stacks, and the dual-fan configuration yields noticeable thermal results.
Now let's have a look at the results demonstrated in the ergonomic domain (noise reference mark -- 31-32 dBA).

Chart 6. Thermal resistance (ergonomic domain)
Now that's a distinct situation -- our cooler under review demonstrates competitive results, performing on a par with the following group of coolers: Cooler Master Hyper 212, GlacialTech Igloo 5750 PWM, Scythe Andy Samurai Master, Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B, Zalman CNPS9700 NT. These are robust coolers. Getting into this group of products automatically characterizes DuOrb CPU as a skilled High-End product. That's the right spirit.
