Thermal Performance Testing

Inside PB 600 Window we have just two cooling fans. A 120mm and 140mm – rear exhaust and front intake, both are Pure Wings 2. This traditional method of cooling in a push-pull configuration usually yields good results.

To discover the thermal performance of PB 600 Window we will record idle temperatures after 20 minutes from a cold boot. We will then stress the system and temperatures will again be monitored after 30 minutes have elapsed. The fan controller will be set to “high”.

For the purpose of accurate analysis, the idle and load temperatures for CPU will be recorded and the range between idle and load will be calculated to determine how efficient cooling is.

NOTE: Ambient temperature is 20C

System Components

CPU Intel Pentium K G3258 @ 4GHz
Motherboard GIGABYTE Z87X-D3H
CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Graphics NVIDIA GTX 760
Memory 4GB Kingston HyperX DDR3
HDD Samsung Spinpoint 500GB SATA-II
PSU DeepCool DQ750


Noise is definitely not an issue with PB 600 Window. The thick panels and option to modify the speed of the fans help to minimise any noise emission – even with the fan controller set to “high” this can be regarded as undisruptive.
