Now, let’s compare the system cases with each other as well as with the open testbed.
The Enermax Phoenix Neo looks best in idle mode. Most of the components are cooled better in it than on the open testbed. The AeroCool Syclone is the worst model here: the HDDs have the highest temperature in that system case.
We see the same picture when the HDDs are under high load: it is only in the AeroCool Syclone that the HDDs are cooled worse than on the open testbed where the HDDs have no air flow whatsoever.
The system cases all produce similar results under high CPU load although the Enermax is again a little better than the others because the mainboard is cooler in it.
And finally, there are two best system cases under gaming load: the Enermax and the Scythe Fenris Wolf. There is only one model, the AeroCool Syclone, that may make you worry about your components.
