To test the Antec Mini Skeleton I'll be recording the IDLE and LOAD temperatures of the main components. To record the IDLE temperatures I will use HWMonitor. I will leave the system untouched for 30min and record temperatures when CPU usage is as close to 0% as possible. To stress the components I will run Prime95 for a few hours and record temperatures while Prime 95 is still running. All below temperatures are in Degrees Celsius.

The Mini ITX board and it's components generated more or less the same amount of heat in every case. However, that does mean that the Antec Skeleton can compete with mid and full tower cases. It also managed to outperform the "Open Air" setup across the board.
