I will be testing the idle and load temperatures of the system CPU, GPU, and chipset using Prime95 after running the small FFT test for 30 minutes. The idle temperature will be taken after 30 minutes of idle activity. The GPU temperatures will be tested by running 3DMark Vantage for 30 minutes and then a return to idle activity after 30 minutes. The room temperature during testing was maintained at 72°F (22°C) and all cases were running only the fans with which they shipped.

For the most part, the Thermaltake Armor Revo, juiced up with 200 mm wind tunnel fans, turns in big-boy temps on the heels of the Switch 810. Remember, there are options for a few more 120/140 mm fans that can be added to the Revo.
