Testing Time

We followed our standard case testing methodology, as detailed in our previous heatsink and case testing article, and fitted the usual set of hardware into the Lian Li Tyr PC-X2000, doing our best to hide and tidy cables to ensure as few airflow restrictions as possible. Here's a reminder of the hardware we use.

CPU: Lapped Intel Pentium XE 955 (dual-core, 3.46GHz)
Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 3850 Ultimate passive cooled
Motherboard: MSI P6N SLI Platinum
RAM: 2x 512MB Corsair XMS2-667
Hard Drive: 1x 250GB Western Digital WD2500 7,200RPM
Heatsink: Asus Silent Square Pro
Power Supply: Cooler Master Silent Pro 700W PSU

With the triple 140mm intake fans, our hardware inside the PC-X2000 will be receiving plenty of cool air, so hopefully we should see some impressive performance.

Delta T is the difference in temperature between CPU or GPU and the ambient temperature. A lower Delta T is better as it shows the case or cooling solution is performing closer to the surrounding temperature.
