The setup comprised of an Intel QX6850 Kentsfield processor mounted on an ASRock 4Core1600P35 motherboard. The setup was run in an open-case concept and laid horizontally on the table. Temperatures were monitored with the provided monitoring utility from ASRock.  Load temperature testing procedure involves running two instances of Orthos Small-FTT-test (4 threads in total) at least 15 minutes or more if necessary to obtain a stable temperature. For Idle temperature measurements, we waited for the CPU and system temperatures to stabilize after loading the Windows Desktop with no applications running in the background.
