Cooling Performance

For cases capable of housing ATX or larger motherboards, we use our standard ATX case test kit. which includes:
We disable the motherboard's onboard CPU fan control and all CPU power management features, while the graphics card fan is locked at 25 percent speed using MSI Afterburner. The system is loaded using Prime95 25.11 and Unigine's Heaven 4.0 benchmark. We use CoreTemp and GPU-Z to monitor the temperatures, taking the maximum values after 15 minutes - enough time for the readings to plateau.
