For testing today we are using an Intel Core i7 920 processor in conjunction with a Coolit Vantage CPU cooler. For testing we set the Coolit Vantage to Extreme mode and set the case fans to the highest setting.
Chassis: Corsair Graphite 600T
Processor: Intel i7 920 (D0)
Motherboard: Asus P6T
Cooler: Coolit Vantage
Memory: 6GB Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600 (3x 2GB)
Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB (7200rpm)
Power Supply: Corsair HX850W
Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Everest Ultimate Edition
The diagram above shows how the airflow is set up out of the box. The 200mm fan at the front of the case is the only intake with a further 200mm fan at the top of the case acting as an exhaust. There is also a 120mm fan acting as an exhaust at the rear of the case which we replaced with the Coolit Vantage for testing.
The Corsair 600T managed to keep our test system cool, aided by the awesome cooling power of the Coolit Vantage which kept our i7-920 chip cool even when overclocked to 4.00GHz. The Zotac GTX 470 reached 92c but this is a result of acoustically balanced automatic fan profiles.
