Thermal Performance – Noise Normalized Full Fan Speed
The Battlecruiser II stays close to 30 dBA (29.4 dBA, to be precise) with its four fans at full speed, while the be quiet Shadow Base 800 FX is at 32.3 dBA. This comparison is not fair, but we do not live in a fair world either way!

CPU & GPU Average Clock Frequencies
We have to look at the average CPU and GPU clocks to have the complete picture since higher clocks mean more thermal load, which pushes the cooling system more. If we have two cooling systems with only a 1-2 degrees Celsius difference and a 100-200 MHz difference in the clock speeds of the CPU or the GPU, it is easy to find the best performer.
At full speed, the Invader X has an edge over the Battlecruiser II. In GPU it scores in the last place.
