Testing:

Testing the AZZA Genesis 9000 full tower case required pushing my hardware to heat things up! Testing involved recording temperatures for the CPU, GPU, chipset, hard drives, and overall system during idle and load phases.

Load was simulated by running Prime95’s small FFTs while also running 3Dmark Vantage for one hour. The maximum temperatures were recorded using HW Monitor. It is important to note that each case is tested from its factory setup, including location of fans, unless otherwise noted.

Well there you have it. This case, to put it simply, rocks at cooling. There is a downside though – the stock fans are pretty loud. So while the AZZA Genesis 9000 does put up a good fight to the other cases (the exception being chipset temperatures) it's being compared to it is also easily the loudest of the bunch. That's not to say it's going to make your ears bleed like the Vantec Tornados of yesteryear but it's definitely not a silent case. Switching the fan mode to low speed (which also turns off the LED lighting) transforms the case into a quiet beast but temperatures are affected by this enough to take away most of its commanding lead on GPU and CPU temperatures. All in all a good showing by the Genesis 9000!
