RAIDMAX Orion Case Review

Testing:

Testing the Raidmax Orion required pushing my hardware to heat things up! Testing involved recording temperatures for the CPU, GPU, chipset, hard drives, and overall system during idle and load phases. Recently, OCC upgraded to the ForceGT 240GB SSD from Corsair and has removed the HDD temps from case reviews. Thus, HDTune is no longer a part of the case benchmarking process.

Load was simulated by running Prime95’s small FFTs along with 3Dmark Vantage looping for one hour. The maximum temperatures were recorded using HW Monitor. It is important to note that each case is tested from its factory setup, including location of fans, unless otherwise noted.

The temperatures under load were rather impressive! Though the same can't be said for the idle temps, the temperatures were right in the middle of the large pack of cases – so in reality there's no complaint. The CPU and chipset load temperatures being so low are likely due to the three fans in the case. The CPU cooler gets the help from the rear 120mm fan as well as the top 120mm fan getting rid of heat. Overall it performed quite well.
