Testing :

Testing the Xigmatek Gigas was a bit different than testing the other cases I've reviewed. It still required me pushing my hardware to heat things up and as usual, testing involved recording temperatures for the CPU, GPU, chipset, hard drives, and overall system during idle and load phases. Load was simulated by running Prime95's small FFTs and 3Dmark Vantage for one hour. The maximum temperatures were recorded using HW Monitor. Unfortunately, this motherboard does not have a chipset sensor for temperature so it is left out for this review. Also, since I haven't run this board for benchmarks before I also tossed the exact same setup in my Corsair 600T for some comparison temps so you would have some idea as how it compared to a mid-tower chassis. It is important to note that each case was tested with its factory setup, including location of fans, unless otherwise noted.
