Idle Temps

Temperatures for idle looks normal at around 38 degrees Celsius. It’s what I expected as there’s no activity.


Load Temps

With the system at full load, here we see the temperature jump to a high of 62 degrees Celsius. It’s acceptable and it’s what I expected. No issues with normal system operation.
