Cooler Master HAF 700

Temperature and Fan Noise

We tested the HAF 700 with the CPU fan set at 1000 RMP. In addition, we manually set the chassis fans to 1000 RPM and max setting at 1800~1850 RPM. Idle, our i5-12600K temperature is at 30C and GPU temperature is at 35C with fan at 1000 RPM and we noticed 1 degree cooler at the max fan setting. Under load, the CPU temperate is at 61C and the GPU temperature is at 71C at 1000 RPM. At max fan setting, the temperature of the CPU and GPU is lowered by one degree. The temperatures are certainly impressive. Something we did notice is that the components temperature inside the HAF 700 raises at much lower speed than other cases we have tested. What is even more impressive is that the HAF 700 is able to achieve good cooling performance while keeping the fan noise to the minimum. Even when the fans are running at full speed, they are still very quiet. Yes, you do hear the fans moving the air if you put your ear next to the system but sitting next to the system, the noise is not too loud. In fact, in day to day use, I found myself hardly ever notice the fan noise.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
