Thermaltake Commander G41 Testing:

Testing a chassis requires the computer to stay at idle and load for one hour. Doing so will give you an idea of what your computer may be like under stress. Normally your computer will not be running this hot, but we do not all live in cold weather or do similar things. Therefore, a full stress test can give people the idea of what it can handle and whether or not heat gets trapped over time. The case is left with stock features to give you an idea of the temperatures without the need for extra fans. It's almost guaranteed to have a slight drop in temperature when more fans are added, but that will not be covered unless noted. I will be using Prime95 "small FFTs" for the CPU load and 3DMark Vantage "Extreme preset" for GPU for one hour. After an hour the temperatures are recorded using HWMonitor in Celsius (°C).

* All tests are conducted at 73 °F /23 °C ambient room temperature.

The results are in! The chassis is slightly higher than most of the competition. Most of this is expected when the space inside the chassis becomes compact and limits the amount of airflow. With the fans on max the chassis doesn't provide a high amount of airflow. It's enough to move the air in and out, but not enough that I would recommend using two video cards in this chassis. The single pre-installed fan front was a good start but the inability to install a second fan once again can be a blow to maximizing cooling the capacity.
