All cases will be benchmarked under Idle and Load conditions. Room temperatures will be specified accordingly. Temperatures measured will be: CPU, GPU, and Hard Drive. All temperatures will be measured using the internal thermal sensors, unless otherwise specified.
- OCCT x 30 minutes for load temperatures
- AIDA64 for System monitoring
The entire system will be placed under load by the OCCT program for 30 minutes and temperatures will be taken. They will then be compared to the temperature readings taken after 30 minutes of system idle. Stock temperatures were taken with motherboard power saving features enabled and Windows power saving set to "Balanced". Fan controller set to maximum.
Room Temperature: 19C
