The guys over at French publication 01net found something a little odd about their Zotac ZBOX CI540 review unit. While the unit does have a completely fan-less design the Intel Core i5-4210Y dual-core chip inside was idling at around 80°C. Noticing this high temperature the reviewer opened the ZBOX up to reveal that Zotac had left the protective film on the thermal pad, which conducts heat from the CPU to the chassis of the unit. Once the film was removed the temperatures of the CPU dropped, but reaching for that thermal pad actually voids your warranty!
