Picture of Thermographic Inspection of My Automation PC!

I thought it useful to establish a baseline for the thermals on my home automation pc. I used my Seek thermal xr camera for this job and the visual camera on my galaxy note 4.

Step 1: The Pc Cabinet.

The 250watt supply is only loaded to a maximum of 52watts. All looks fine with it and I hope it continues with its long service life.

Step 3: The Enclosure Fan.

This cpu is a skylake i7 35watt quad core. It sips power and as such the voltage regulators have an easy job.

Step 8: The SSD.

I do love solid state drives for low power consumption and cool operation!
