Raidmax Scorpio V Review


Raidmax Scorpio V: 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 73 °F /23 °C ambient room temperature.


Compared Cases:

















The results are in! Looking at the results above you can see the Raidmax Scorpio is on the high end, which is disappointing. When I receive such a wide temperature range or much higher temperatures from the last chassis I always disassemble and reassemble the CPU cooler and reseat it just in case something happened. Unfortunately the next benchmark yielded the same results within a degree for all three; therefore I could only assume from process of elimination that the chassis is at fault, not the hardware. This is going to make a rather large dent in my final thoughts and score as a major factor in chassis is the temperature and how well it dissipates heat.
