LONDON, ENGLAND, December 2020 – High-end processors such as the Intel® Core™ i9-10900
usually requires a hefty cooler, usually equipped with high-speed fans, but Akasa’s new Maxwell Pro fanless mini-ITX case can tame the beast, all whilst producing nothing but silence. The Comet Lake Core™ i9 comes with ten cores and twenty threads; and a max turbo frequency of 5.20GHz, making it one of the most powerful processors on the market. Our tests have shown its impressive benchmark scores whilst being passively cooled in the Maxwell Pro, making it perfect for assisting the processor in activities such as content creation and 4K video. The case is a high-performance fanless case that can handle up to 65W TDP, and can adequately maintain temperatures around 80°C.
In Cinebench R20, a multi-core stress test program, we achieved exceptional multithreaded scores of 4010, with an average core frequency of 3.1GHz. Temperatures averaged at a cool 78°C, and never went over 91°C. These results show the excellent cooling power of the passive case, able to tame the mighty Core™ i9 10900. Starting at £437.99 in the UK, €455.99 in Europe and $469 in USA, the i9 can power through intensive tasks, such as rendering, with ease, all whilst keeping well below temperature limits in the Maxwell Pro.
