They will no doubt be several degrees below ambient.

The ambient was determined by having the ambient probe INSIDE ANOTHER INDUCTIVE RESISTOR that has no power going to it and the ambient probe was left in that power free inductive resistor through the ENTIRE test. This comparison is ACCURATE.

The shunt and load resistor were at AMBIENT before running. And again, the ambient used as a reference is INSIDE ANOTHER inductive resistor that has no power going to it and is sitting on the same temperature as the load resistor.

They are UNDOUBTEDLY the SAME temperature as ambient, when not running. Your condition of a required below ambient temperature is false.
