Temperatures, Cooling and Noise
Packing this much performance into such a small chassis will obviously have some downsides or everyone would be doing it. The usual downside to packing lots of hardware into a small package is heat and power consumption.
Origin has done an excellent job with the cooling system on the EON11-S and made some smart engineering decisions that make this a great portable gaming system.
As you can see, on the front of the system, we logged a maximum temperature of 97 degrees Fahrenheit. It should be noted that this max temperature was located away from the WSAD gaming keys, which remained fairly cool in our testing.
Moving around to the back side, temperatures were higher. The maximum observed temperature was 101 degrees Fahrenheit. This is not unreasonable and is actually quite incredible for a small machine, such as the EON11-S.
The maximum observed GPU temperature was 93 degrees Celsius, a temperature well within the limits for a video card. The CPU reached a maximum of 97 degrees Celsius, a temperature that is quite a bit higher than I would like to see a system running at. While mobile chips are designed to withstand higher temperatures, this is a bit high.
All-in-all, the system itself stays relatively cool considering the components that are included inside.
The EON11-S produced a sound level of 51 decibels in our measurement. This is the loudest system we've tested, though 51 decibels is not really too loud. It's good to note that this system does not have the typical whine associated with small fans.
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.
