The Tempest 410 Elite has 3x 120mm fans pre-installed and also has a number of other options throughout its chassis for additional fan cooling. Following a traditional air-cooling layout the Tempest 410 Elite should offer good cooling performance.
To discover the thermal performance of the Tempest 410 Elite I will record idle temperatures after 20 minutes from a cold boot. I will then stress the system and temperatures will again be monitored after 30 minutes have elapsed.
