Test Setup and Test Methodology
Room temperature was 20°C during testing, ambient noise clocked in at 36dBA. Noise measurements were taken at 50cm from the front of the case.
Realtime HDR and Orthos were used to stress the Dual Core system; Core 2 Temp was used to monitor Core temperature (duh) and Speedfan to check the temperature of HDD and Motherboard. Rivatuner’s temp monitor checked the G80 GPU at regular intervals. Maximum values were recorded.
The Intel Bax Axe motherboard features several thermal sensors, the “mobo” values are those recorded by the sensor which can be found between the DDR2 memory banks, marked A
in the overview:Cable Routing & Larger VGA Cards
The Amoris 6010 is a mid-tower case, it handles the larger 8800 GTX videocard with grace, there’s enough room left to install even larger video cards. Cable management wise it’s a mixed bag, if you have a lot of larger cables, you can’t fit them all behind the right side panel, the open space in the 5.25” bays might come to the rescue here:
The 5.25” bays are not visible through the window cut-out, so you’re left with this:
Not bad at all!
