I tested all equipment in a Thermaltake Armor Full-Tower case, as well as the Antec 900. The CPU, chipset and hard drives were all tested under load using Orthos, while the temperatures were monitored with NVIDIA nTUNE and HD TUNE. The graphics card was tested under load using 3D Mark 2006 and the temperatures were monitored using nTUNE. All measurements are shown in Celsius. Lower numbers are better.
- Intel E6600 @ 3.6GHz
- EVGA 680i SLI
- 2 x 1GB G.SKILL RAM
- EVGA 8800 GTX
- Thermaltake Toughpower 850W
- WD 160GB SATA HDD
- Samsung DVD-RW
- Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
I expected to see an improvement in temperatures due to the massive 200mm fan in the Antec case. However, I never imagined to see the amazing results that came from the Antec case, especially with the poor wiring job that I had.
