Thermals and noise
As far as cooling and noise are concerned, we can say Zotac did a very good job, considering the unit’s performance and its compact size. Previous ZBOX models were relatively quiet, too, which wasn’t the case with many nettops, including some from much bigger brands. The EN760 is silent until you crank up the GPU and start gaming. Even then, the small blower fan is not too loud, but you can hear it clearly.
When it’s placed horizontally, the EN760 stands on four rubber feet and there is a fair amount of clearance, so there is enough room for airflow.
The GPU temperature does not exceed 71 degrees Celsius. The CPU temperature is somewhat higher though.
