    Has anyone done stress or heat testing on the new 11" i5 or i7 ?

    Put the thing under load with handbrake or some other CPU intensive task and watch the temp on the CPU?

    I've noticed the temps on my 2012 i7 2.0GHz are a decent amount higher then the temps of my 2011 i5 1.6GHz.

    my i5 ivy bridge idles around 50C in 16C room temp. it's pretty hot if u ask me compared to my 6 year old hp which idles at 30C. I applied new thermal paste on that so I guess if u apply arctic silver on a macbook air it should lower the temps.
