These shots were taken at exactly 30 minutes into the test. The CPU temperatures are virtually unaffected but the largest difference is in the hard drive temperature. We see that it is 6C cooler with the fan running at full speed. This does make some sense as the CPU sits on top of the motherboard so heat transfer is a bit more difficult from the underside. The hard drive is positioned on the bottom of the notebook under an access panel. I did note though that after load tests were complete, the machine did cool down much faster than without the ErgoStand. This is probably more reflective of actual use conditions than a full load temperature test.
