Good question...I'll crank up a bunch of backups and see how the temps look...
Here's a little load test I performed last night, running all three of these tasks at once:
1) Backing up 20 GB of content from the server's internal array to an external USB3 drive
2) Unzipping 20 GB of compressed content via 7-Zip x64. The compressed content was stored on the server's internal array and was unzipped to an internal SSD
3) Ripping & encoding, via Handbrake, the Disney WOW BD-ROM from the server's optical drive to the server's internal array
CPU temperature climbed to, and hovered around, 48c and motherboard temp climbed to, and hovered around, 36c.
I'm comfortable with those temps, however would anyone else watching this thread not be comfortable with those temps?
