What would you consider hot for a external surface tempurature
Posted on 2016-11-15
I have a new fleet of Dell Latitude 7370 laptops that are having lots of issues with the USB-C devices. I am using Dell Dock WD15 USB-C Thunderbolt and DA200 USB-C to HDMI,VGA,NIC and VGA. With both devices I lose network connection and/or additionally other connected USB device(e.g. mouse and keyboard). When I look in Device Manager I do not see the Realtek Gbe USB, but when I unplug and plug it back in the devices appears and works fine. The majority of the pattern is lengthy usage and the bottom external temperature is 120ºF. The device has plenty of air flow around it.
I think that temperature is really hot.
What do you think?
