Temperatures, Cooling and Noise

 

The Acer Aspire R7 is a decently hefty laptop, which could play into how well it manages heat.

As you can see, on the front of the system we logged a maximum temperature of 99 degrees Fahrenheit. This high temperature was located right underneath the touchpad, which on this system is located above the keyboard. This allowed the keyboard to be located away from the hot components, keeping it a cool 84 degrees.

Moving around to the backside, temperatures were slightly worse. The maximum observed temperature was 106 degrees Fahrenheit. However, the rest of the temperatures observed were all less than 95 degrees. Using the system on your lap while fully loaded would still be ill advised.

The maximum observed GPU temperature was 80 degrees Celsius; the same as the CPU, as they are on the same die. The CPU reached a maximum of 80 degrees Celsius; this is a bit hotter than I like to see chips running at, but is still one of the lower temperatures we have seen a CPU run at in a notebook.

The R7 produced a sound level of 41 decibels; making it one of the quietest notebooks we have had the pleasure of reviewing. Our measurement is taken in front of the laptop at roughly head level. For comparison: 30dB is a totally quiet nighttime in the desert, 40dB is whispering and 60dB is a normal conversation.
