Thermal design, temperature Intel X710-T4 Ethernet adapter

Hi All!

 

I bought this ethernet card (Yottamak sticker is on it and valid). I want to use the card in a built in pfsense firewall. There is no active cooling on the card. On a desktop machine, I updated the firmware to the latest version. It all took about 5 minutes. During this time, the heat sink and PCB temperatures were very hot. I would like to ask if this is normal operation or the card is faulty, X540-T2 card is in the same desktop machine and the temperature of the T2 card is hand warm compared to the X710-T4 card.

 

I don’t want to jeopardize and ruin the device where I install the card with a possible overheating.

 

 

Thank you for the answer,

 

Peter

Hello PCser,

 

Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities. 

 

Did you try to check or get the reading of the temperature? And how is the cooling of the system?

Can you provide more data or screenshot for us to investigate?

 

If you have questions, please let us know. In case we do not hear from you, we will make a follow up after 3 workings days. Thank you.
