A few of you have asked for it, and I certainly wanted it, and now it's here: all of our case testing data with the current set of testbeds is now live in Bench! You can visit here to run comparisons between the cases that have been reviewed up to this point, and new cases are added as the reviews are written.

Additionally, we also have a CPU Cooling bench that includes all of the CPU coolers tested under current procedures as well!

Check them out, and if you run into any problems or have any questions, please let us know in the comment section.

Update: Issues mentioned in comments should now be fixed.

    Looks broken.
    I choose "CPU Cooler Benchmarks" --> "Load Temperatures" --> "View Benchmark Results" button and it shows me "Sysmark2007 - Overall"

    Likewise with "Idle Temperatures".

    Would it be possible to correlate thermal performance with acoustic performance? When I'm looking for a CPU cooler, I don't care which is the absolute quietest, nor which gives the absolute best thermals, I'm looking for good thermals and good acoustics at the same time.

    For example, you could enforce a specific noise level using a fan controller, and measure load temperature at whatever fan speed is required to reach that threshold,

    Alternatively, You could plot a graph of noise vs temperature at a specific load, which would let you compare coolers that can't overlap in noise level or temperature, and also allow you to compare the different fan settings for a single cooler at a glance.

    "You could plot a graph of noise vs temperature"

    This would be ideal. Trying to read the separate noise and temperature charts and seeing which give the best balance is quite difficult; it's surprising that AT hasn't combined all those into simple combined noise/temp charts.

    Under "Browse Cases Benchmarks", choosing ITX cases does not seem to filter correctly; the cases listed appear to be uATX and ATX.

    Also why is there no uATX category (for cases that only fit uATX motherboards or smaller)?

    Would it be possible state the noise floor on the appropriate charts?

    Dustin please review the new Silverstone TD02 and TD03 AIO coolers. Reviews are coming back and show performance on par or better than an H110/Kraken X60.
