Testing:

Testing is probably the most important aspect of comparison between cases. You can compare features all day but what it really boils down to is how well it performs. For testing I ran a set of Idle tests and Load generating tests to show how well the case cools the CPU, GPU, HDD, and Chipset when Idle and under load. For the CPU and Chipset load tests I used Prime 95 in blend. I ran this test and every other test for a whole hour after which I record the temperature. For testing the load on the HDD I used HdTune and for the GPU ran Folding@Home. For each idle test I allowed the computer to idle for a whole hour before recording the temperature. Of course with any temperatures, lower is better.

I'm not really surprised. In fact I expected this case to go toe-to-toe with the competition and in some cases it beat half or more of the cases in the test pool. It probably could have done a bit better in the GPU temperatures if only it had the 220mm side intake fan. The hard drive test is where it truly shined, where only three cases of the entire test pool managed to beat it.
