Corsair Carbide 330R Titanium Edition Review


Corsair Carbide 330R Titanium 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:
















Unsurprisingly, the results are the same, given a one degree error of margin. The testing however, were conductive on a medium setting as that is what seemed like the best choice. At that setting, I could not hear the fans run, which is also the major selling point of this chassis. If the consumer can hear the fans then the main purpose for this chassis is nullified. Therefore, I felt a medium fan setting was appropriate. However, looking at the charts above, it can be seen that the ability to go lower on the temperature scale is possible if the fans are cranked up.
