Cooler Master HAF XM Case Review

Test setup:
CPU: i5 2500k
CPU Cooling: Gelid Tranquillo
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3
Power Supply: Corsair TX 650w
Memory: 2x2GB ADATA 1600mhz memory, 2x2GB Corsair 1600mhz memory
Primary Storage: Crucial M4 64GB SSD
Graphics Card: ASUS GTX 580 Matrix

In order to see how well the case supplies cool air to the internals we tested the cooling performance with a heavily factory overclocked GTX 580 and a standard CPU cooler. CPU stress tests will contain a 10 minute run of Prime95 (blend) at stock speed and again at 4ghz with a small voltage increase whilst the GPU results will be after a 5 minute run of Furmark.

Running the tests for this length of time is sufficient enough for the temperatures to plateau and has a low risk of damaging hardware should an issue arise.

This GTX580 is a hot running video card under Furmark load so the temperatures are not a reflection of the cooling of this case. The 2500k is held under 60c at load, even when overclocked to 4ghz.
