The Gigabyte XTC700 should be near or exceed Noctua NH-U12S in terms of CPU cooling performance as both are single tower dual 120mm CPU coolers. Another CPU cooler to look out for is the CM Hyper D92.
Base Close Testing
In stocks, the Gigabyte XTC700 CPU cooler is comparable with Noctua NH-D9L single/dual fans and CM Hyper 103 Dual fans.
With the 4.5 GHz @ 1.29v setting, the load temperatures are on par with NH-U9S with a dual fan setting. Alas when you compare with fellow 120mm fan setups such as with 4.7 GHz @ 1.35v, it exceeds 88 degrees. Despite turning off Thermal controls on the UEFI and temperature limit on OCCT, the system crashed.
