Temperature and Power Consumption

I was very surprised at the power consumption of the Beebox, I figured since the CPU has a 2W TDP, I would get around 5W at full load. What I didn't consider is that the CPU runs cooler than the memory and mSATA drive! Together plus all the other IO like the four USB 3.0 ports, total system power consumption can easily reach 10W, which isn't a big deal, just a little surprising.

Shot of the front and back of the Beebox after 30 minutes of 100% load. The device never went above 60C, however, that is still pretty toasty. Granted, you probably won't run the box hard enough to ever get these temperatures, as they are artificially induced by stress test programs, but the tiny box does okay.

 

The cooling system does seem to work and evenly spread the heat around the entire chassis.
