To test the Anidees Al6 Mid Tower we will be using the AMD Phenom X4 FX-5000 CPU matched with a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H motherboard. We are sticking with the reference AMD cooler to cool the CPU.

To get started lets look at the out of the box air flow pattern.
For our temperature tests, we used Prime95 to load the system for 15 minutes and then recorded our results. We then let the system remain idle at the desktop for 15 minutes before recording the temperature results. The fans in the Anidees Al6 and the CPU fan are running at full speed for this test. The ambient temperature was maintained at 21c for the duration of the tests.
The results of our temperature testing fell in line with what we would have expected. Our CPU maxed out at 52 degrees Celsius which is acceptable considering the stock heatsink is being used. Adding a quiet bottom intake fan and top mounted exhaust fan should reduce these temperatures significantly without adding much to the noise levels.
