Good test. Congratulations. However, it isn't clear to me whether you could or couldn't test it in a closed case. When I look at this picture, I'm not sure you were able to close the side-panel on the P182 case.

Good to see that almost all my arguments from this thread were taken into account, since the result is a MODERN test platform.

I think a 95W CPU provides a happy medium, and people can extrapolate the results for their choice CPUs . In fact, there has been a ...

ZEROtherm Nirvana CPU Cooler

Well, this is my first post although I'm an old member and a true fan of SPCR (I really love the tests regarding power supplies, cases and fans). Hell, it's about time! (starcraft 2 quote) :lol: The reason behind this is that some of my compatriots are trying to make a point, but their manner is som...
