Testing:

To test the cooling prowess of this mass of case. I decided that rather than install a more conventional system. I would use it to house my quad GPU gaming system to see how it deals with lots of heated up graphics cards and the dreaded "heat stack effect". All cases, including the comparison cases were tested under the same conditions and with stock fan placement only.  All temperatures readings are taken with HW Monitor, CPU and Chipset temperatures were taken after 30 minutes of OCCT's standard CPU stress test. For Hard drive temperatures I opted for a real life scenario of taking the highest temperature after 30 minutes of downloading an identical large file. Idle temperatures were all taken after 30 minutes idling after the specific task or load testing. The ambient room temperature during the testing was a constant 22C

  • Processor: AMD FX-8120
