The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 25c – 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.
The passive solution does a good job of keeping the temperatures down, even when playing a demanding game such as Crysis. The Raven 02 delivers such massive levels of airflow however you can expect the idle temperatures to increase slightly inside a lesser chassis.
