Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Review



I ran the V3 Black Edition through the usual gauntlet of tests. I tested CPU temperatures, GPU temperatures, HDD temperatures, and chipset temperatures at both idle and full load. I used HwMonitor to check temps for GPU, HDD, and chipset and RealTemp for CPU temps. To generate load on the CPU and chipset I ran Prime95 in blend to stress these components. I ran this for an hour and then recorded the temperature at that time. For GPU load, I ran [email protected] for an hour also and I used HDtune to generate load for the hard drive. For all idle tests, I simply allowed the system to idle for a whole hour and then recorded the temperatures.


Testing System:


Comparison Cases:












It seems that the V3 stuck right by the competition in just about everything. I was surprised to find though that the CPU load temperature was drastically different from the results that the other cases had. It is very likely because the case only has one fan, but one may never know for certain. For a sub-$50 case, however, I would say this one isn't half bad for what it has.
