Temperatures

We use a Noctua NH-U14S and measured the CPU temperature while running Blender. We specifically picked an actual application as that better reflects real-life usage than a synthetic stress-testing application like Prime95.

Before you wonder why some Intel temperatures are so low, note that unless indicated otherwise, all processors are tested at stock conditions with their power limit active. As designed by Intel, the CPU can exceed its TDP for a few seconds, but in the long-term, the power limit is respected, which brings down temperatures considerably. We report the steady-state temperature after an extended runtime.
