The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 25c – a comfortable environment for the majority of people reading this.
Idle temperatures were measured after sitting at the desktop for 30 minutes. Load measurements were acquired by rendering a scene in Cinema 4D for 30 minutes and measuring the peak temperature. All fan settings were left on automatic.
Due to the confined space and the small profile cooler, the CPU temperatures peak at 84C under extended load, much as we would expect.
