AZZA Zen 8100 Review


AZZA Zen 8100 Testing:

Testing a chassis requires the computer to stay at idle and load for one hour. Doing so will give you an idea of what your computer may be like under stress. Normally your computer will not be running this hot, but we do not all live in cold weather or do similar things. Therefore, a full stress test can give people the idea of what it can handle and whether or not heat gets trapped over time. The case is left with stock features to give you an idea of the temperatures without the need for extra fans. It's almost guaranteed to have a slight drop in temperature when more fans are added, but that will not be covered unless noted. I will be using Prime95 "small FFTs" for the CPU load and 3DMark Vantage "Extreme preset" for GPU for one hour. After an hour the temperatures are recorded using HWMonitor in Celsius (°C).

* All tests are conducted at an average 73 °F /23 °C ambient room temperature.


Compared Cases:














The results are in! AZZA's newest chassis performs very well considering the low RPM fans. I re-ran the benchmarks a few times like I always do when I feel something may be off, but this time the data was correct. The addition of a fan in the top rear of the chassis helps move unwanted air away from the CPU cooler, thus lowering the temps. However, because the fans do only spin at a set speed, it is possible with a fully loaded case the heat might not get away without some extra help. Overall out-of-the-box performance, AZZA does a great job and keeps it very quiet.
