For cases with CPU cooler clearance of 65mm or less, we use our super low-profile mini-ITX test kit. which includes:
CPU cooler Noctua NH-L9a
The CPU fan is fixed at full speed while the graphics card fan is locked at 70 percent speed, and the system is loaded using Prime95 26.6 and Unigine's Heaven 4.0 benchmark. We use HWMonitor and GPU-Z to monitor the temperatures, taking the maximum values after 15 minutes - enough time for the readings to plateau.
