Input 42 minute eyetv recording of the walking dead recorded at 1080i. Handbrake was set to output a 1920 x 1080 mkv file normal 20 mode. Finished the run in 30 minutes. CPU % was between 450% and 650% with the average near 525%. Temperature and fan speed. Fans started at 2000 (temp started at 120 F) and topped out at 3800rpm. Average fan speed was about 3000. The fans didn't kick in until the temp got to 200 F. Highest temp was 208 F. For those that have asked the unit was very quiet throughout and the case while warm to the touch was no where near hot. I had to put my ear about a foot away from the case just to hear the fan. I was very impressed with how quiet the fan was during the handbrake run. Can't wait till the 16g of memory I ordered for it arrives. Need that much for the VMs I have on the machine plus at 80 bucks I never have to think about the memory for the life of the machine.
