Methodology

Since this is my first case review, I cannot compare the Node 804 with other cases, mainly due to the fact that I do not have the same set-up. For the results available below, I intend to boot Windows and keep it in Idle for about 30 minutes first, then fire several load-tests for five minutes, and let it return to idle for the following 5 minutes. I record the highest CPU & motherboard temperature, and compare the difference between an open case, with every panel removed, and a closed one.

Loading benchmark will be enabled by using Prime95 and Furmark. Temperatures are registered by RealTemp 3.7 and Speedfan 4.49 for Motherboard.

Lastly, I also intend to use a sound-meter at 30cm from the bench and register the noise-level.

For the test, the room temperature is kept at a steady 26°C.
