    Operating Environment


    The operating temperature must not be exceeded, even when used in a chassis with a higher temperature range.

    Ambient temperature range

    0 °C to 50 °C (See notes below.) (Tested in accordance with IEC-60068-2-1 and IEC-60068-2-2. Meets MIL-PRF-28800F Class 3 temperature limits, except as noted.)

    Relative humidity range

    10% to 90%, noncondensing (Tested in accordance with IEC-60068-2-56.)


    Processor should not throttle CPU frequency under reasonable, worst case processor work loads at high operating temperatures. If you experience CPU frequency variation, turn your chassis fans on High, using the fan speed selector switch on the rear of your chassis.
