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. Room ambient temperatures were 23c.
We measured results with CPUID Hardware Monitor software. The CPU was loaded with Cinebench in a loop and Furmark stress test.
System temperatures can get quite high, with the processor peaking around 88c when fully loaded. Nothing critical long term, but a little higher than we would like to see within such a confined space.
The machine gets hot on the left side (from top down) especially at the top, next to the heatpipe and fan exhaust. The other side of the chassis is quite cool even when loaded.
