2. Run sisoft sandra burn-in wizard, both cpu tests on stress
for 50 loops.
3. Check MBM5 for high temp.
4. Play ps2 for about an hour, check idle temps.
Room temp: 70F (21C)
Our case was a mid size, using
only one fan to push air out in the back, so add in intake and
these temps could be much lower.
Wow... Eleven degree drop
Here we see the idle temps in Celcius... you Euros made me make
an extra graph :p
Ahh, $15 for 11 degrees at full load, can't get a better deal
Here's the full load in Celcius.
