    That's neat. Was the nMP doing anything at the time or just idle?

    That's cool, and looking at that the cooling works well. Nowhere was it above 100º

    Excellent thanks OP - would be great seeing that running crossfire on bootcamp with all of the processors cooking!

    I'd actually rented the FLIR from my local Home Depot so I could go around the house, identify air leaks and plug them. I'd gotten the idea from a "winterizing your house" article I'd read somewhere recently.

    While using the gun in my home office I turned around and thought it would be cool to image the nMP. It wasn't under load at all...just a couple of things running like Mail, Safari, iTunes, Calendar, Omnifocus, etc.

    What I love about the nMP is that no matter what I throw at it, it never seems to break a sweat and I never hear the fans really spin up.
