Cooltek Ultimate Case reviewed - 5. Test Results

Review: Cooltek's best

Cooltek strapped its case with four fans which are pretty quiet. That’s not to say that they’re entirely silent but it will be enough for most users. One thing is for certain – you won’t lack lighting within the case as three out of four fans on this case come with blue LEDs. The control panel on the case will allow for independent turning on/off of fans but the LED can’t be killed without turning the entire fan off.

The case is pretty roomy and will take anything but the largest of CPU coolers. Furthermore, it will easily take what’s currently the longest graphics card – HD 5970.

Cooltek paid much attention to the toolless mechanisms and we must say it’s a job well done. The mechanisms are simple and effective but are made of plastic, making them seem a bit fragile. This means that you might want to take care of them if you plan on using them for a long time to come.

Testbed:
Motherboard: MSI P35 Platinum
Processor: Intel Core 2 Extreme x6800
CPU-Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper Z600
Graphic Card: Gigabyte’s passively cooled Geforce 9800 GT card
PSU: CoolerMaster SilentPro 700W


We pushed the CPU with Prime95 while the graphics card was idle. The following table clearly shows that Cooltek Ultimate Case packs plenty of potential and that it can proudly take on some cases with a much more superior pedigree. During our testing, all the fans ran at standard RPM that can’t be changed.
