Xclio A380 Super Tower Case
March 07, 2007


The same components used in the installation portion of the review were used to test the thermal performance of the A380. To reiterate:

Zippy (EMACS) 600W Power Supply
AMD Opteron 148 Processor
DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-DR Motherboard
1024MB G.SKILL Extreme DDR (2 x 512MB) Memory
3x Hitachi 80GB 7200 RPM SATA-II Hard Drives
eVGA GeForce 7800 GT CO 256MB GDDR3 PCI-E
Pioneer DL DVDRW
Compaq DVD ROM
D-Link Wireless G PCI
Sound Blaster Audigy 2z Platinum Sound Card

For testing I overclocked the Opteron 148 to 2900 MHz (290x10) at 1.5V and the G.Skill RAM to DDR590 speeds (2.5-4-4-8) at 2.62V. To reach a maximum temperature for the CPU and chipset I ran Prime95 for an hour and took a reading of the temperatures using Smart Guardian software.

To compare the Xclio A380 Super Tower Case's cooling, I chose the Enermax Chakra because it has the same size fan on the side. Note that I cleaned the chipset and applied AS5 for the Xclio thermal test.

As you can see by the graph, the Xclio A380 out cooled the Enermax Chakra. Both have 25CM side intake fans, but the Xclio speed and air flow are both higher. The result is a cooler, but slightly louder system.
