For power draw testing, please refer to my CPU power draw testing for the Core i9-12900K. Due to the short time we’ve had for testing, I’ve yet to develop a formal testing for Alder Lake motherboard to isolate each power load properly. At the moment, we monitor all power lines individually for power testing but have not yet concluded a formal way to measure power testing that would vary enough to justify the board’s actual power draw. That said, this will be developed in a future review.
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.
