In order to find the ambient case temperature, I left the system
powered down for a period of 40 minutes, with an open case.
This insured that any trapped hot air escaped the case, before
any testing began. After the time was up, I powered on the system
and let it sit idle and took temperatures at five- minute intervals
and averaged them together after half an hour. I then repeated
this process with the slot-fan installed in the system.
ensure that the CPU was completely cooled, I gave the system
a 40-minute resting period before each test. After the resting
period was over, I powered on the system and recorded the CPU
temperatures at five-minute intervals and averaged them together
after half an hour. I then repeated this process with the slot-fan
installed in the system.
determine how effective the slot-fan was under high CPU stress
load, after each idle temperature test, I started up my distribute.net
client and recorded the temperature after an hour.
