Thermal Performance Testing

Inside Silent Base 600 Window we have two cooling fans one 120mm fan at the rear and one 140mm cooling fans at the front. This push/pull configuration usually presents good results, so we expected good results.

To discover the thermal performance of SB 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.

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

Fan controller is set to maximum.

NOTE: Ambient temperature is 20C

System Components

CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8GHz
Motherboard ASUS M4A89TD PRO
Graphics NVIDIA GTX 480 (Different from card pictured)
Memory 4GB Kingston HyperX DDR3
HDD Samsung Spinpoint 500GB SATA-II
PSU DeepCool DQ750


True to be quiet!s ethos and the nature of this case, the cooling fans emit very little noise at all. The double-glazed panel and noise reduction material all help to keep noise to a minimum. With the fans on the maximum setting via the fan controller, the noise is barely noticeable thanks to the thick panels and materials used.
