Overall, the temperatures were not that remarkable; I had expected a little more with the excess space to move air about. The chipset temperatures were something notable. These temps took over the lowest by over ten degrees at load. I attribute the difference solely to the side mounted fans. It is almost unfair to compare it to the others in the batch, as none of them had side panel fans to blow air directly across the motherboard. Either way, it does perform well here and very well at that. Unfortunately, the remaining temperatures were only equivalent to the other cases, which are significantly smaller. I was expecting a much bigger difference in temperatures and was gravely disappointed."
Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
