Temperature and Power Consumption
Power consumption is much lower than I expected. With IBT and FurMark running at the same time, I was not able to break the 50W mark.
This 50W number is quite good considering the adapter can provide close to double that. The extra headroom could allow for higher wattage CPU operation.
The thermals reveal that the front vents are air intake while the rear vents act as exhaust. The blower fan runs very well; ECS's curve is setup correctly.
At idle or low load, the fan runs at low speed and is silent. I wasn't able to get the fan into audible range except when I loaded IBT and FurMark at the same time.
Overall this is a very quiet unit. You could keep it on your desk without discomfort from fan noise.
