In order to properly test the In Win Matrix I will gather temperatures for the processor, chipset, and hard drive during their idle phase and load phase. To record idle temperatures I will leave the computer running for fifteen minutes with little to no stress whatsoever. Next I will simulate a load using Prime 95 with small FFTs (Fast Fourier Transform) and HDTune simultaneously for thirty minutes. I will be using the latest version of HWMonitor to help monitor temperatures. Ambient temperatures during testing were 22 degrees Celsius.
- Processor: AMD 5200x2 2.6GHz
- Motherboard: ASRock A780FullHD
- Memory: G.Skill DDR2 800 2X2GB 5-5-5-15
- Video Card: Integrated Graphics (ATI Radeon HD 3200)
- Power Supply: 300W Power Supply (included)
- Hard Drive: Seagate 1TB SATA
- Optical Drive: Lite-on DVD-RW
- OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
- Ambient Temperature: 22° Celsius
- Case: Ultra UV Wizard
- Case: Rosewill R230
I was quite surprised with the results. I expected both the CPU and chipset temperatures to skyrocket at least in to the high 60s. For the limited space and fans the case has, it performed exceedingly well.
