Sapphire EDGE-HD2 Mini PC Review
Power, Temperature and Noise
To test the thermal, noise and power aspects of the Edge-HD2 we recorded the readings at load using Furmark and Prime95. Idle readings were taken after the system had been sitting at the desktop, unused for 15 minutes.
The one thing which really jumps out about the above results is that Sapphire have clearly perfomed some tweaking to the thermal and noise balance within the Edge-HD2, these result in a system which runs hotter but at the same time remains near silent at all times, a rare thing in mini-systems.
We also note that there is minimal change in the power draw from moving to the higher specification components.
Here is an example of the system at its loudest.
