Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition

To test the Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition we will be using the AMD Phenom X4 FX-5000 CPU matched with a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H motherboard. For today’s testing we are using the SilenX EFZ-120HA5 to cool the CPU.
To begin we have a diagram that indicates the airflow patterns of the Commander MS-I chassis.

Test System:

Chassis: Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition Mid Tower
Processor: AMD Phenom X4 FX-5000
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H
Cooler: SilenX EFZ-120HA5
Memory: 3GB DDR2
Storage: Segate 150 GB Sata II
Power Supply: Corsair CX500
Graphics Card: HIS Radeon 5570
Digital Sound Level Noise Decibel Meter Style 2


Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)
Aida 64
Prime 95

For the temperature tests, we used Prime95 to load the system for 15 minutes and then recorded the results. We then let the system remain idle at the desktop for 15 minutes before recording the results. The single 120mm fan in the Commander MS-I and the CPU fan are running at full speed for this test. The ambient room temperature was maintained at 18c for the duration of the tests.

When we consider the fact that only 1 fan is installed, the temperatures running Prime 95 were excellent. If the single fan that is included is not enough, as many as three additional 120mm fans can be added to the default configuration.
