Testing:

For testing I performed the usual tests. For all load tests, I used Prime 95 to generate load on the CPU and Memory subsystems in Blend mode. I allowed this test to go on for an hour before recording temperatures using a combination of HwMonitor to get chipset temperatures and RealTemp for CPU temperatures. For all the rest of the load tests, I used HwMonitor. To get HDD load applied I utilized HDTune and for making video card load I used Folding@Home. These tests I also allowed to run for an hour before recording temperatures. Finally, for the idle test, all I did was simply allow the computer to idle for an hour and record all temperatures.

 

Testing System:

  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale @ 3.00GHz
  • Motherboard: DFI Lanparty UT P45-T2RS
  • Memory: OCZ Reaper HPC DDR2-1066 2x2GB
  • Graphics Card: VisionTek HD 4870 512MB
  • Power Supply: OCZ GameXStream 600W
  • Hard Drive: 1 x Seagate 320GB SATA 7200.10
  • OS: Windows Vista Ultimate

So it seems the Element V contends with the competition decently, taking the competition out in two of the eight tests, which isn't too bad at all. Not bad ThermalTake, not bad at all!
