Testing:

Testing is another great way to show how the product performs. For testing, I apply load on the test system and record the temperature on four areas, which are CPU, GPU, Chipset, and HDD. I measure the same four temperatures at idle, as well. For all tests, excluding the CPU, I use hwmonitor for temperatures and, for CPU, I use RealTemp. For the CPU and Chipset, I put load on they system using Prime 95  in blend mode. After an hour, I record the temperature of the CPU. For the GPU, I use Folding@Home to stress for an hour and then record the temperatures. HDD temps were raised using HDTune to stress the harddrive. For all idle testing, I simply allowed the computer to idle for an hour to bring it to a stable temperature.

The IronClad performed pretty well in all tests, but seemingly lost out in the CPU tests. This perhaps is because I couldn't mount the top fan on the heatsink like in the other cases. It seems that the 220cm fan was beneficial to the case as it lowered chipset temps.
