Thermal Performance Testing

Inside 4000D there are two 120mm cooling fans, one is positioned as an intake at the front and the other is positioned as a rear exhaust. This configuration (push-pull) is highly favoured for good airflow.

To discover the thermal performance of 4000D 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 will be recorded and the range between idle and load will be calculated to determine how efficient cooling is.

NOTE: Ambient temperature is 20C

The below system configuration is different to that which is displayed/installed within the pictures. We use this below configuration for historic comparison.

System Components

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


The noise emitted from 4000D can be regarded as “low-noise”. As per our video, we reported around 43dB from overall system noise (includes GPU, and CPU cooler).
