Last week, I built a fanless Roon Rock core by pulling the motherboard out of an Intel i7 NUC (NUC10i7FNH1) and putting it in an HDPlex case, removing the fan, and installing the heatsink (photos attached). I loaded it with a 500gb M2, 2TB SSD, 32GB RAM (single chip). Transferring my library over the network was easy and it works great with no issues.
A few questions:
I would like to stress test the heat sink. Right now I am running hi-res files (both Quobuz and WAV) to four different Roon Endpoints. I plan to do this for a few hours and then check the CPU temperature on the BIOS (which requires rebooting the Core). Is there any better way to do this and test the temperature?
Are there particular DSP settings that would stress the CPU more that I should turn on?
I recall there was a way to see the CPU usage % on Roon Remote but I cannot seem to see it anywhere. How do I find that?
Any help is appreciated,
