Thermal Imaging and Noise

The screen of the notebook warms up a few degrees when under load, and the keyboard does as well, but surprisingly the keyboard doesn't get hot. Topside thermal performance is solid, and we can see how the air intake vents draw in the cool air right behind the keyboard.

Check out that Falcon (the God AORUS used a Falcon as symbolism) that become visible under IR thermal vision when a load is applied. The tips of its wings are where the air intake is located, and temperatures are actually decent.

Fan noise, when the machine is at full speed, is not as bad as you might think. The fans will ramp up just like any other gaming notebook, but they don't holler or go into a dust-removal mode (full speed).
