AZZA XT1 Testing:

Testing a chassis requires the computer to stay at idle and load for one hour. Doing so will give you an idea of what your computer may be like under stress. Normally your computer will not be running this hot, but we do not all live in cold weather or do similar things. Therefore, a full stress test can give people the idea of what it can handle and whether or not heat gets trapped over time. The case is left with stock features to give you an idea of the temperatures without the need for extra fans. It's almost guaranteed to have a slight drop in temperature when more fans are added, but that will not be covered unless noted. I will be using Prime95 "small FFTs" for the CPU load and 3DMark Vantage "Extreme preset" for GPU for one hour. After an hour the temperatures are recorded using HWMonitor in Celsius (°C).

After collecting enough temperature data, I think it is safe to say that both the video card and CPU are not the best for capturing the chassis temps. While generally a degree or two off is considered within the margin of error, I keep my house a near constant 22 °C when I run the tests. On a warm day, the XT1 will not disappoint with the most airflow in a chassis I have tested so far. Yet, it still does not hold any records. The unfortunate effect of not overclocking high enough or having multiple video cards, it is hard to tell what the temperatures will look like in different scenarios. The XT1 is really meant as an airflow monster and if you have a hot video card or even multiple ones, this chassis has you covered.
