Testing:

Testing the Corsair Vengeance C70 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.

The Vengance C70 falls right into the lower/middle of the pack. It has a bit of a high idle for the CPU temperature but clearly CPU cooling is not an issue when things start to heat up – it performed better than many cases that have a lot more (and more noisy) fans. Load temperatures all around were quite good, comparing well with the much larger Enermax Fulmo GT and the C70's fellow Corsair cases. In fact, with the exception of the 300R for the loaded CPU, it matches or outperforms essentially all of Corsair's other cases under load! Color me impressed, especially for the extremely quiet fans in this case.
