AZZA Nova 8000 Review


AZZA Nova 8000 Testing:

Testing involved recording temperatures for the CPU, GPU, and motherboard during idle and load phases. The load was simulated by running Prime95’s small FFTs and 3DMark Vantage for one hour. The maximum temperatures were recorded using HW Monitor 1.21.0. Please note that each case is tested from its factory setup, including location of fans, unless otherwise noted.


Testing Setup:



Comparison Cases:



I left the case fans connected to the manual control during the thermal testing, and I set them to full speed. First we test the CPU temperatures. Idle temperatures are right at 28 °C, and with a spread of a couple degrees Celsius, either side of 28 is just fine. We crank up the heat and we land in the middle at 76 °C. The four included case fans seem to do a decent job of moving air through the case.

We move over to GPU testing and we see idle results coming in at 31 °C, which is again in the middle. Under a load, the temperature goes up to 81 °C, which is consistent with the other test cases. I don't usually see much variation. The video card I am using (NVIDIA GTX 770) is a reference design with a blower-style fan, which pushes the hot air out of the rear of the case. I find this design is beneficial to keeping internal case temperatures down as compared to cards with fans mounted on the heat sinks that tend to circulate the hot air in the case. That is where a case with good circulation really becomes a factor.

The four case fans produced a moderate amount of fan noise, which is no surprise when there is excess heat to be removed.
