So, let's talk of this temperature aspect. As I previously mentioned, I first took a reading with the panels secured neatly with screws, so the case wouldn't get cold without its metallic attire. Then, I stripped it all down and ran all the tests again. I then recorded the variation between the two numbers, and that should represent the air-flow effectiveness for the case out of the box.
I compiled the table below to showcase the temperature difference between the chassis with all panels added and one with only the frame:
|With Panels||Without Panels|
|CPU Temp Idle||37°C||34°C|
|CPU Temp Load||56°C||54°C|
The noise level I got was with the switch on the fan controller turned to the highest setting. Overall, the chassis is exceptionally quiet, and is almost inaudible at more than a meter away.
