Lighting & Performance

This case does not come with any type of lighting, but since we did install RGB fans in the front of the case here is what that would look like.

Here is the breakdown of the test system we use for cases.

Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
Motherboard: ASUS Prime X570-Pro
Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 XC Gaming
Memory: G.SKILL Trident Z Royal DDR4-3200 16GB
Storage: Lexar NQ100 480GB
Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 Snow 750W
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim 2
Case: Corsair 6500D Airflow

We will be using AIDA64 for temperature readings and a RisePro Sound Level Meter to record sound levels. Sound levels are taken 5 inches from the front of the case as well as from the side of the case.

Idle readings are taken on the Windows 10 desktop after the system has been on for 1 hour. Load readings are taken using AIDA64’s system stability test with both the CPU and GPU selected. First up we have our temperatures for both the CPU and GPU.
