Tagan A+ Curbic Review

RHKCommander959    -   November 24, 2008


Testing:

The Tagan Curbic will be run under a volley of tests to determine how well it can handle heat. Idle temperatures were taken 30 minutes after booting into Windows, load temperatures were then taken after 30 minutes of stress testing the hard disk, GPU, and CPU. The temperatures were based upon the hard drive, chipset, GPU, and CPU temperatures. The case cooling is with the stock fans only. The comparison cases are the Hiper Osiris, Raidmax Smilodon, and open-air setup.

  • Processor: Intel Q6600 Core 2 Quad 266x9
  • Motherboard: Abit IP35 Pro
  • Memory: G.Skill 8000 2 x 2GB 5-5-5-12
  • Video Card: HIS 3870 512
  • Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower Modular 750watt Power Supply
  • Hard Drive: 1x Samsung 750gb SATA
  • Opticals: LG DVD Burner GSA-H44LK
  • O/S: Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
  • Ambient Temperature: 18 degrees Celsius

 

Comparison Cases:

  • Hiper Osiris
  • Raidmax Smilodon
  • Open Air

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall the setup kept temperatures pretty low. In comparison to the others, it performed on par to the other higher performance cases. The chipset has a small heat sink that requires a fairly direct source of air, thus the large fans didn't keep it too cool, but still in a very safe range.
