ThermalTake Chaser MK-I Review

» Discuss this article (4)


Testing the setup is a very simple process which consists of four tests designed to show just how well the case is able to dissipate heat. I will be putting the CPU, GPU, HDD, and Chipset through a series of idle and load tests designed to show how cool each of these components stays in the given situation. For the CPU and Chipset load tests I apply load using Prime 95 in blend for an entire hour and afterward record the temperature using a combination of HwMonitor and RealTemp. Idle testing is pretty much the same except instead the computer is left idle for a whole hour and after which tempearatures are recorded. For the GPU load testing I used the [email protected] GPU client, and for the hard disk drive load testing I used HDTune. When it comes to beating the heat, lowest is always best.


Testing System:

  • Processor: Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67GHz
  • CPU Heatsink: ThermalRight Ultra Extreme 120mm Black Ed. - 2x Scythe Kaze-Jyuni 120mm @ 110CFM.
  • Motherboard: DFI Lanparty UT X58-T3eH8
  • Memory: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 998995 PC3 12800 3 x 4GB
  • Graphics Card: XFX HD6970 2GB
  • Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W
  • Hard Drive: 1 x Seagate 500GB SATA 7200.12
  • OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
  • Ambient Temperature: 22 °C


Comparison Cases:




The Chaser MK-I did hold out well overall only being beaten by its higher-priced brother, the Level 10 GT, and occasionally losing out to the likes of the XL Tank and Centurion 5 II.
