Temperatures, Power & Storage Performance
Before we get into major testing we wanted to see temperatures on the system. We measured both CPU and GPU temperature in three different situations. The First was idle on the Windows 10 desktop for an hour, the second was playing Apex Legends for 1 hour, and the third was running the AIDA64 system stability test for 1 hour with GPUs selected. We recorded the highest temperature reached throughout each test.
We also recorded our power consumption during these three tests with a Kill-A-Watt.
Next is storage performance. The first drive we will be testing is the 960GB NVMe SSD.
Up next is the 2TB 5400 RPM hard drive.
As you can see there is a big difference in performance here, it would have bee nice to have seen at least an SSD here.
