For temperature testing, we use a thermal logger that capture per second readings from our VRM. Our logger captures the temperature of the VRM arrays with the left array as VRM1 and upper array as VRM2. Our 15-minute split load puts continuous load on our CPU with 5-minute in-between.
What does it mean that this is not gaming board? What does it miss?
It states that it “not a gaming or creator motherboard… and that is fine” which means its not particularly geared for both BUT honestly, it works well for either. Board makers tune gaming boards for higher performance e.g. higher boosts versus Intel stock but that’s pretty marginal. Other than that, not so much in “gamer”-ey features like a ton of RGB connectors and boosted audio or LAN.
