Routerboard 450G temperature is way up there

Sun Jun 05, 2011 6:40 pm

I'm recording 64° right now and about 61° during evening and night. Will this cause damage?
I don't even know whether it is normal, it isn't that hot where I live. Could there per any chance be heatsink issues?

Best regards,
Jeroen

Hi,
I was thinking about this just yesterday :)

My 450G was operating @ 66-67°C for 3 days, when it suddently "rebooted" all by itself (and complained about a unclean shutdown sequence... O'Rly?!)
I don't know if it's related, as I upgraded from v4.17 to v5.4 a couple of days before.

The 450G documentation writes: Temperature range -20C to +45C
But it's not that meaningfull as my board is in a case and not opened to the sky...

I'm not willing to drill the case either, even knowing that room temperature can be much higher than it is actually :/
RB450G - OpenWrt (so much more stable than with routerOS)
-> now: UBNT EdgeRouter Lite

(very unlikely to be MT customer again in the future)

If you read other documentation on routerboard.com, it says it will operate until 65°. So I'm still inside the safe zone :).
Perhaps Normis will favour us with an official kind of reply?

temp range is operating environment temperature and NOT unit's hottest point temperature :-)

This is my RB450G placed in a rack with heavy throughput. Here 65°C seems like it's minimum (: And I don't have problems (at least temperature related) with it.
