The power consumption of the ASRock DeskMini GTX1080 is very high compared to other SFFPCs, but it's quite low if we compare those numbers to a normal gaming desktop.
The thermal performance is actually pretty good, the unit does heat up quite a bit, but nothing throttles during heavy use. The fans do spin up a lot, and you can adjust the fan curve for the CPU and GPU, and set them to silent. I recommend setting the fan curve for the GPU to silent because at default it's on normal. Overall, excellent thermal performance but the fans spin up all the way.
