Thermal Performance Testing

Inside our 678C we have three 140mm cooling fans which are in key locations. This type of arrangement usually delivers good results!

For this test, we will use the top panel with the noise damping material.

To discover the thermal performance of 678C we will record idle temperatures after 20 minutes from a cold boot. We will then stress the system and temperatures will again be monitored after 30 minutes have elapsed.

For the purpose of accurate analysis, the idle and load temperatures for CPU will be recorded and the range between idle and load will be calculated to determine how efficient cooling is.

NOTE: Ambient temperature is 20C

Thanks to its thick panels and noise damping material, noise is barely heard from 678C.
