Hi Erez,

The DAC sensor measures silicon temperature. This runs typically 45 deg C above room ambient air temp.
Under normal conditions the DAC temp is expected to be 65 deg C or below, however the sensor has a +3/-3 deg C accuracy so 68 deg C could be quite normal.

If the DAC is reporting 80-85 deg C or higher, I’d recommend checking that there is nothing impeding air flow in and around the unit, no direct source of heat, and that you are operating the desk within the specified ambient temperature limits.
