The keyboard actually doesn't get that warm going from idle to a very heavy synthetic load. I was surprised temperatures weren't that much higher, but that could be because of the fan, it's active a lot.

While we typically see exhaust vents go colder, in this case, the vents sit on top of the PCB, so the temperatures we see are actually from the PCB components heating the PCB. The exhaust vents cannot be easily seen, but they sit at the rear of the device and blow at the hinge, and we see the side with the CPU blower get warmer than the rest.

While the notebook stays very cool, the fan can ramp up often, and you will hear it if the load is heavy enough.
