Temperatures, Cooling and Noise


The GIGABYTE P25W is a fairly slim laptop that packs a fair amount of performance. As such, it's very possible that the temperatures we are about to see could be a bit on the high side.




As you can see, on the front of the system, we logged a maximum temperature of 117 degrees Fahrenheit. This high temperature was located right underneath the KOL keys, which is away from the all-important WSAD keys. Those keys, however, reached a maximum temperature of 97. The palm rests, meanwhile, stayed relatively cool.




Moving around to the backside, temperatures were slightly better. The maximum observed temperature was 112 degrees Fahrenheit. Using the loaded system on your laptop would likely be uncomfortable.




The maximum observed GPU temperature was 80 degrees Celsius. The CPU reached a maximum of 98 degrees Celsius. The GPU was kept plenty cool by the laptop's cooling system. The CPU, however, was much warmer than I'd like, running at a temperature that could damage the chip over time.




The P25W produced a sound level of 51 decibels. This noise was likely increased due to the slimmed down size of the chassis over larger 17-inch models in our chart. Our measurement is taken in front of the laptop at roughly head level. For comparison, 30dB is a totally quiet night time in the desert, 40dB is whispering and 60dB is a normal conversation.
