Post CPU/Case temperature
Hey there,

So far Intense PC Pro is working pretty good. Running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

The only thing that worries me a bit is the high temperatures during intensive usage.
The first cases where I noticed this are :

1) when VirtualBox was creating a fixed-size HD for my Windows VM. Temperature (according to lm-sensors) went up to 80C and the display started showing purple markings/lines. I shutdown immediatelly after the process was complete just to be sure I wouldn't overheat anything.
2) The next day same happened when the Windows-VM was installing upgrades. Temperature went high up to 77C. No strange markings on the screen this time.

Should or can I do any tests to make sure everything is working properly? Or is this normal behaviour?

Thanks for thinking along.

You are talking about the T junction temperature. This is an absolutely normal temperature for an active usage. Intense PC was tested under a stress and temperatures up to 95C, so you have a sufficient temperature window from the measured 77C.

Thanks for your reply, gabriel!

Okay, sounds good. What about the purple markings on the display?

At that particular moment I did not think of taking a screenshot, sorry.
I will keep an eye and may it happen again I will take a screenshot. Though I am only using the desktop through VNC now (headless machine), don't know if markings could occur there too?

Hi gabriel,

I haven't noticed this happening anymore. But as I said I'm only using the device headless connecting through VNC/RDP. There aren't any graphic-intensive programs running.
