Test results cooling 12V
The second set of the four tests we do with fans running on high, 12V. Noise production will increase, but so should the cooling performance. The Corsair Carbide again does very well.
With 200 watts of heat we see the same results as with the fans on low speed. The 300R takes third place ahead of the Three Hundred Two. The Corsair has virtually the same performance of the Silverstone Kublai KL04 which is about £20 more expensive.
With both fans running on high the Carbide 300R performs the worst compared to the competition, at least in terms of cooling. Still, fifth place is far from bad, especially when you look at the noise that's generated. Its temperature of 28.8 degrees is very acceptable, and proves that you can keep a high-end system sufficiently cool in this chassis.
