To test the case, I've taken off the temperature probes and am using them for ambient front and rear of case, for case temperatures. I will be using an infra red probe, as well as the normal temperatures reported by case probe and giving the average from them. (ex, infra red 34C, temp probe 36C temp = 35C.) All temperatures will shown in celcius.

The temperatures below will reflect the temperatures measured at idle and 100% load, at both stock speed and with an overclock of 3.075GHz. All measurements will be taken in celcius.The top graphs will be at stock speeds and the bottom graphs will be at overclocked speeds.
There were no variations in temperatures between stock and overclocked speeds, these temps reflect the temps of the hard drives when being used, HDtune was used to stress the hard drives.
