Are these observations correct?
0.2C ambient temperature drop = 1C object temperature drop. (Big heatsink, no fan.)
21.3C ambient = 29.7C
21.5C ambient = 30.7C
Test object is a 2.5\" SATA -to-USB case running at 100% load with a lapped 150mm x 95mm x 15mm tall multi-finned 250gm aluminium heatsink resting on top & no thermal interface material.
Adding a fan (any fan, any orientation) dramatically reduces the object temperature, of course.
