The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 24c – 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 running Furmark and Cinebench together. We included results from a diode which we placed beside the motherboard and the exhaust fan.
The Silverstone chassis helps generate a fair level of airflow across all the components, with the AMD APU peaking at around 61c. Ambient results were great, with the chassis temperatures only a couple of degrees higher than the room.
