Power/Temps/Noise

To test the thermal, noise and power aspects of the ZBOX 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.

Looking first at APU temperatures the ZBOX Nano comes surprisingly close to the AD05 with only a few degrees separating the two at load. No drive temperatures are present for the new system as the SSD does not support that reading but system temperatures are very good with power use also showing a drop over the AD05, no doubt down to slightly fewer components such as the lack of optical drive.
