Cooling System And Heat Levels

The CPU cooling unit comprises a combination of heatpipes and a 3.14" (80 mm) fan. Even in idle mode, however, this arrangement is clearly audible at 44 decibels. Although the hot air is blown out through the side, the temperature inside the G-Max increases quickly. This can be clearly measured by the RAM and SIS chipset. If you hold your hand at the opening on the side, you will pull it back quickly, because it really heats up there. A mini-PC with built-in hairdryer? During the stress test, the G-Max reached 54 dB(a).

This noisemaker makes it to 54 decibels

It gets hot quickly inside.

The G-MAX CA2LSE is in the mid-range for volume
