Raidmax Horus 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).

The chassis overall held up well with an overclocked CPU and only one rear fan. I believe this is due to the fact that the fan is very close to the CPU fan and an opening above it for heat to escape without fans. For the video card, having a vent on the window helped to give it some fresh air. Lastly, because of the compact size, the chipset didn't receive much airflow due to a lack of a front fan and sitting underneath the video card.
