Cool, but, what's the performance like?

Temps and benchmarks, please.

Performance is the same as any other budget system with a dual core Athlon and a GTX 460
Plays pretty much anything well at up to 1920x1080 on high settings, played Crysis 2 on advanced settings at 1440x900 very smoothly, would run it on hardcore if I gave the CPU a small OC to 3.5GHz or so.

As for temps...well lets just say they are AMAZING
8C minimum temperature on the CPU cores anyone? With all fans on minimum it goes up to 16C minimum on a cold day. Max CPU core temps I have EVER recorded are just under 40C.

24C minimum on the GPU? Yep, and the max in furmark after 20mins is 71C. Playing CSS and COD4 at a LAN a few days ago saw the GPU give a max temp of 50C all night!

Yes it is almost winter down here so it is cold out, but even during summer the CPU and GPU never got very hot in games.

I think a main reason for this has something to do with the size of the case. If the case has less air in it, then it requires less fans (or slower running fans) to move the hot air out. If you have a big case like a HAF-X, and the front fan only pushes air just past the HDD bays then it's not going to be very good is it. The air won't make it to the GPU before it gets dispersed and looses its wind force. With a tiny case you can feel the cold air from the front 120mm 1000rpm fan push onto the GPU fan. It really works very well

Cheers mate
Really sorry about the tiny pics, for some reason OCAU picture hosting is making all my pics tiny
Will try and fix it cause it looks way better with hi-res images.

I can take a pic and upload it later if you like but it's nothing special, just enormous
