Test Setup


Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.4B GHz Northwood


Motherboard: Asus P4S8X SiS 648


Memory: Corsair XMS 3200 CL2 512 DDR


Cases: dboX (1x 120 mm fan, 1x 80 mm fan), M25 (2x 80 mm fans), Lian Li PC 60 (3x 80 mm fan) NOTE: All cases use the stock fans they come with


Video Card: ATi Radeon 9700 Pro Video Card


Hard Disk: Seagate Barracuda ATA IV 60 GB HDD


Drivers: ATi Catalyst 2.3


Operating system: Windows XP Professional





At idle, the dboX edges out the Lian PC 60. It seems that the 120mm at high output performs well. The M25 is about 5-6 degrees behind both cases.



We used CPU Toast to stress our system to the max. As you can see, the dboX only budges 1 degree Celsius while the Lian Li shifts up 2 degrees. The M25 still holds it's ground in the 35 degree range.
