AZZA Titan 240 Case Testing:

Testing involved recording temperatures in degrees Celsius for the CPU and GPU 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 the location of fans unless otherwise noted.

 

Testing Setup:

 

 

 

The thermal imaging camera is a great tool that shows where the heat is concentrated. In the picture to the left, the CPU is at idle and shows exhaust air at around 31°C. The blue areas are the coolest (ambient) followed by shades of red, which are a little warmer, increasing to orange, and finally, the warmest being yellow. The fans from the D14 CPU cooler direct the excess heat to the rear of the case, where it is ultimately pushed out of the case. After kicking in the mild overclock, the temps go up close to 36°C coming out of the rear of the case. There are a couple more hot spots below the exhaust fan - one is the GPU and then toward the bottom is the power supply working hard (and generating heat) to supply the system with enough power.

The GPU testing shows similar results to other test cases in the same size range, and this is to be expected when using a reference style (blower) GPU. The blower pulls cool air from the case and ejects it out of the rear, so heat build up in the case is really minimized and for this reason I like reference-style coolers. But reference style cards can be a bit noisy when the fan spools up, and if you have more than one reference style GPU, it can sound like an airport.

With all the thermal testing done, the Titan 240 performed as expected, and the included front 120mm fan and single rear 120mm fan did a decent job of keeping the air flowing through the case. There is room for more fans, so you have the opportunity to improve cooling even more. Most people don't keep their systems constantly stressed, so heat build-up is not really an issue, but this testing shows that the Titan 240 can tackle the heat.
