Testing:

Testing focuses on four major heat producing components which consist of the motherboard chipset, CPU, GPU, and HDD. Two types of tests are done on each component which helps show how well the case is keeping things cool. Each component is left to idle for a whole hour after which the current temperatures are recorded. After the idle testing we move on to load testing which places load on each component using a variety of load generating programs such as HDTune, Folding@Home GPU client, and Prime 95 in blend mode. After running for an hour each temperature is recorded. All temperatures are recording useing a combination of RealTemp and HWmonitor. Of course, lowest temperature is always best.

 

Testing System:

 

Comparison Cases:

  • Lian-Li PC60-FWB customized with two 120mm top panel fans added in
  • ThermalTake Level 10 GT
  • In Win Buc

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As expected, the combination of the large number and size of fans and the modular design of the case allowed for the individual components to be better cooled, which led to the case ultimately winning in nearly every test.
