Fractal Design Torrent: When other cases just don’t cut it

Conclusion

Recently, Fractal Design introduced the Torrent case, which primarily focuses on the best cooling possible. In addition to a significantly open shell, the case has up to five fans, two of which are oversized and thick. The Torrent thus operates with an extremely high air flow, even in a relatively large space. Therefore, it will be interesting to see in the tests how these layouts affect the temperatures and noise performance.

Conclusion

The test results speak quite clearly in favour of the Torrent case. It significantly dominates in cooling for the most important components such as the CPU, GPU and motherboard. You don’t have to worry about the power supply having a problem with warm air from the case. The temperature underneath reaches only 28.5 degrees at 39 dBA, which can be compared to a “pleasant” summer day in an apartment without air conditioning. The fans are only running at 53% of their capacity at 39 dBA. At maximum speed, the noise level is unbearable, especially when you are not alone in the room, but it can knock the temperatures significantly lower. Except for the graphics card, which it still cools better than other cases.

You’ll love the large space inside, which gives you complete freedom in your choice of hardware and easy and quick access. In addition, the enormous amount of air blown into the interior of the case by the five fans, where you don’t have to think about where to put them, earned the case our highest Top-notch award for excellent cooling.

The Torrent from Fractal Design is a cabinet that will suit most. Whether you want to indulge your components with high-end air cooling or you want to focus on a custom water loop. Dust protection is taken care of by two fine nylon filters that are quick to access. This makes the case more suitable for dustier environments. If you’re a gamer or a content creator and don’t mind paying extra for a quality build with excellent cooling, definitely consider the FD Torrent when choosing a case.
