Thermaltake Kandalf LCS Case

Former staff writer    -   April 5, 2007


Testing:


Air Flow:

Fans:

  • Radiator 3 x 120mm, 1300 RPM, 17dBA
  • Rear Exhaust 120mm, 1300 RPM, 17 dBA
  • Rear Hard Drive 90mm, 1800 RPM, 19dBA
  • Top Blow Hole 90mm, 1800 RPM, 19dBA

All fans were tested for maximum and average CFM, The 120mm fans and 90mm fans all max/min averaged within one CFM  when tested individually so I will use only one graph for each fan measurement to show the results. All fans were measured for five minutes.





Since the radiator fans have to go through the radiator the CFM through it was measured also, I will also multiply the CFM by three to show the total CFM combined. The top blow hole is also covered by some grating and the external USB, Firewire, Sound I/O, I will also give a measurement of the total output through the top of the case.





Amazing how the air flow is cut down when it has to go through something. Not that it surprised me but the top blow hole lost almost half of its output. Next we will take a look at how well the air flows on the inside of the case.
