Testing:

To test the Xclio A380 Color Plus, temperatures will be recorded for the CPU, GPU, chipset, hard drives, and the overall system temperature during load and idle phases. Load will be simulated by Prime95 small FFTs and HD tune for one hour, with maximum temperatures recorded by RealTemp. The GPU load will be the maximum value recorded by Rivatuner after five loops of 3DMark06’s Canyon Flight test. Each case is tested as is from the factory, including the fan configuration. As stated earlier, the fan configuration for the A380 is front and side intakes with top and rear exhausts.

After running these tests, I was quite surprised at the temperatures this case provided. While the chipset and system temperatures weren't too unreasonable, the CPU and GPU temperatures were a bit higher than normal. I reseated the CPU heatsink just to make sure, and the temperatures did not change. Realistically, the A380 didn't really perform much better than a mid-level, affordable case. I will wrap my thoughts up on the next page.
