There is no connection between using 1 port and EEE.am I misunderstanding something? how is using >1 port relevant to not having EEE on?
I'm using all four ports and turned EEE on and temps went from low 90s to low 70s, performance is still perfectly fine.
I actually noticed QoS/SQM turned off EEE, but even after force enabling it afterward through Putty performance is still perfectly fine and temperatures are down (and QoS is still enabled and functional).
I was just pointing out that enabling EEE will reduce temperatures, and using fewer ports will also reduce temperatures.
Doing both will combine the effect.
