The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 24c – a comfortable environment for the majority of people reading this.
Idle temperatures were measured after sitting at the desktop for 30 minutes. Load measurements were acquired by playing Crysis Warhead for 30 minutes and measuring the peak temperature. We also have included Furmark results, recording maximum temperatures throughout a 30 minute stress test. All fan settings were left on automatic.
The CPU cooler does well to maintain temperatures around the 80c mark. The GPU peaks at 79c in Furmark, or 74c when gaming. Adding a single exhaust fan on the side of the case would help circulate more air, and possibly reduce temperatures a little.Wired2Fire Diablo Predator System review,
