Now it is time to get to some testing. The following system was installed and used to gather temperatures:
CPU: Intel i5 760
Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
MB: MSI P55-GD65
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
Video: HIS HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo 1GB
PSU: Ultra X3 1000W
HD: WD 250GB SATA
DVD-Rom: Lite-On 18x DVD Burner – SATA
OS: Microsoft Windows 7
Ambient Temperature: 22-24C
AZZA Fusion 3000
Cooler Master HAF932
Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus
For idle temperatures, the system was allowed to stand at idle for 3 hours before temperatures were taken. To achieve load temps, OCCT was run for 30 minutes and the average peak temperature was recorded using CPUID HWMonitor.
At idle conditions the Fusion 3000 matches or beats the HAF932 with its larger fans. With just three 120mm fans stock the Fusion 3000 does a great job and has room for improvement in the cooling department. Impressive at idle, now let’s turn up the load and see how it does.
With a little more heat involved the Fusion 3000 edges out a slight win in two of the four areas. The two tests that it falls behind in are areas that benefit from the side panel fan on the HAF932 so the Fusion 3000 should be able to meet or exceed those numbers by adding fans to its left side panel as well. The three stock fans are pretty quiet so depending on if you add additional fans noise from this case should not be an issue.
