Phanteks Enthoo Luxe: Testing

Testing a chassis requires the computer to stay at idle and load for one hour. Doing so will give you an idea of what your computer may be like under stress. Normally your computer will not be running this hot, but we do not all live in cold weather or do similar things. Therefore, a full stress test can give people the idea of what it can handle and whether or not heat gets trapped over time. The case is left with stock features to give you an idea of the temperatures without the need for extra fans. It's almost guaranteed to have a slight drop in temperature when more fans are added, but that will not be covered unless noted. I will be using Prime95 "small FFTs" for the CPU load and 3DMark Vantage "Extreme preset" for GPU for one hour. After an hour the temperatures are recorded using HWMonitor in Celsius (°C).

* All tests are conducted at 73 °F /23 °C ambient room temperature.

Phanteks has done an amazing job at keeping the components cool under heavy load. The Luxe is very similar to the Enthoo Pro, but with one major difference internally and it shows. The addition of a 120mm fan on top drops the temperatures a few degrees lower, giving it an edge over the vast majority of cases. Airflow dynamics is a strange thing, but whatever Phanteks cooked up in the lab, it's working! I don't have any complaints to speak of, and the charts above back that up. Anyone looking for a chassis for multiple video cards, the Luxe should be on the short list. While it only has a single 200mm fan in front, the default setup is more than enough for the average user. Add two more fans on top and then nothing can hold this one back.
