Testing:

Testing is simple. I run the case through the usual gauntlet of tests that all cases I test go through. Every component in the computer is tested for its idle and load temperatures. I apply load to the CPU, GPU, HDD, RAM, and Chipset using a variety of different programs such as Folding@Home for the GPU, Prime 95 for the CPU, RAM, and Chipset, and the hard drive is stressed using HDTune. For all of these load tests I let each program run for an hour to stress the selected components. After an hour I record the results and shutdown the program. In testing for idle temperatures I simply allowed the computer to idle which is to say do nothing for an hour. After an hour I record the temperatures. In all tests lowest is best.

Sadly for some reason the AXP-970 pulls numbers a little higher than the average. Though it did fall right along side many of the cases in nearly all of the tests some tests like with the chipset it came in a little higher than the rest. The poor chipset results could possibly be attributed to the fact there is no side fan to pull air in over it. As for all other tests it came in on par with a couple of the cases but was still higher than the rest. So it doesn't perform the greatest but it could be improved by adding more fans and the case is quite feature packed so there is always room for improvement.
