Tagan A+ CS-Monolize Review

» Discuss this article (9)


To verify the cooling capabilities of this case, I will be subjecting it to several tests to see how well it performs in a real world environment. Temperatures that will be checked are the CPU, GPU, Chipset, and hard drive. To put as much heat into the case as possible, I will load test the CPU and memory with OCCT, the GPU with 3DMark06 looped at a 1920x1200 resolution, and put the hard drive to work with a disk defrag, all simultaneously. In addition, I will be using my Kestral 4100 airflow meter to measure the airflow through the case, Low and High speed settings will be tested.


Comparison Cases:








Lower temperatures across the board was the expectation with 300 C.F.M. worth of air blowing over the motherboard and components. The Tagan Monolith delivered on all counts. A drop of 7 degrees Celsius on the CPU with the fans on high is a pretty substantial improvement.
