Testing:

To test the In Win Dragon Slayer I will be taking some temperature readings on the CPU, GPU, chipset and hard drives. These temps will then be compared against another mATX case as well as a bit larger gaming case to see how it holds up and if the design makes the difference it needs. To simulate loads I will be running Prime95 small FFTs for the CPU and chipset, HD tune for the hard drive, and FurMark 1.8.2 for the graphics card for one hour. To monitor the temperatures I will be using AMD Overdrive for the CPU and chipset, HD Tune for the hard drive, and FurMark's temperature monitor for the video card. All of the cases will be using their stock default fan setup that comes in the package. No additional fans will be added keeping the tests fair. All of the components will also be run using their stock voltages, speeds, and latencies to keep anything from interfering with the scores.

Surprisingly, the In Win Dragon Slayer did quite well - especially with the CPU, chipset, and hard drive temperatures. I attribute this to the number of cooling fans running and the openness of space inside the case. When these qualities are paired with the mesh side panel, cool air has an easy way to get into the system and cool the parts.
