Cogage True Spirit Fan Configurations
We tested the True Spirit with its fan blowing towards the exhaust fan, where intake air followed a traditional meandering path from the bottom of the front panel, around the graphics card, over the RAM, through the cooler, and out the back of the case. The case was closed after the photo below was taken when a thermal probe between the RAM and graphics card was hung to test case air temperature.
After testing was complete using the as-delivered parts, we opened the case and replaced the True Spirit’s fan with the Rosewill FORT120's more powerful 2,400 RPM unit. With the case again closed, the faster fan allowed a completely fair comparison of the True Spirit’s performance at the same airflow and noise levels as the competing solution.
