Corsair Graphite 780T 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).

* All tests are conducted at 73 °F /23 °C ambient room temperature.

Results are in and Corsair's Graphite 780T performs decent compared to other full towers. All the temperatures are within reason, but could be even lower if a fan was added to the top. Even so, anyone looking to set up multiple video cards in CrossFireX or SLI will not be disappointed, as this chassis provides enough airflow for nearly any setup. On high the fans aren't loud, but you can tell they are on and running. The test themselves were done with fans set to high to simulate the average experience as by default that is what the system turned on with.

This chassis is suited for any need, whether it's multiple hot video cards or an overclocked processor; this can do it all. With the included fans and the decent temperatures, the price on the chassis can be justified even if you're not taking advantage of the water cooling support. Just make sure you have lots of components to fill it, or it's going to look very empty inside.
