When testing the In Win X-Fighter, I gathered temperatures for the processor, chipset, and hard drive, both when idle and at full load. I used a combination of HWMonitor and RealTemp to probe for temps. For applying load I used Prime 95, HDTune, and [email protected] to stress the CPU/chipset, hard drive and video card respectively. I left the computer idle for 15 minutes to record temps and left it at load for 15 minutes and recorded temps.

Lower is better
The X-Fighter stands up pretty well against the competition and only loses in the chipset area and a bit in the video card area. On the flip side, it has pretty large gains in the CPU and hard disk areas. Overall, I was amazed at what this case could do for how quiet it is.
