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.
