To properly test this computer case, I will be testing for the idle temperatures as well as the full load temperatures. The way that I will be doing this is by letting the computer sit for 30 minutes at idle, recording the temperature, then running a one hour OCCT stress test with a blend of both CPU and RAM with a normal priority, then record those temperatures. I will be using SpeedFan Version 4.32 to gather my system chipset, CPU core, as well as the hard drive temperature readings. For the video card temperatures, I will be using ATI Tool Version 0.27's built in temperature monitor. To gather the full load temperatures of the GPU, I will be running 3D Mark 05 two times back to back, then quickly looking at the temperature reading.
- Intel E6600 @ 3240MHz (1000MHz OC)
- G. Skill DDR800 @ 850MHz 4-4-4-10-2T
- ATI Radeon X1950Pro (GPU @ 587MHz, Memory @ 770MHz)
- OCZ 700W GameXStream
- Western Digital 320GB 16MB Cache SATA
- Lite-on DVD-RW
- Sigma Atlantis (Case)
- Thermaltake Armour Extreme Edition (Case)
- Windows XP with Service Pack 2
I will be comparing the Atlantis to the Thermaltake Armour Extreme Edition with one rear 120mm fan, one rear 90mm fan, one Front 120mm fan, and one top 90mm fan. The Atlantis has four 120mm fans, I wonder how the temperatures will compare.
