For the testing today we decided to use an AMD Bulldozer based system, overclocking the 8150 processor to 4.2ghz. This is different to the test system pictured on the previous page.
Processor: AMD Bulldozer FX 8-core 8150 CPU @ 4.2 GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
Cooler: Antec Kuhler H20 920 CPU Cooler
Memory: 8GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1800+ MHz
Graphics Cards: AMD Radeon 6450 HD (GPU @ 850 MHZ, Memory Clock @ 1000 MHz)
Power Supply: Akasa Venom Power 750W
Boot Drive: OCZ Vertex II 60GB SSD (OS only)
OS: Windows 7 Home Edition 64bit
Pyle Digital Sound Level Meter PSPL03
The airflow through this case is impressive. We had to remove the 140mm fan at the rear of the case to install an Antec 920 cooler, comprising two 120mm fans. Other than that we are using the stock configuration with the fans set to their highest setting.
In terms of thermal performance this case is very impressive, maintaining good internal temperatures and ensuring the components have plenty of cool airflow. When we tested the same components in an Antec Solo II chassis, the processor temperature hit 61 degrees under the same conditions.
