For our tests, we used a test rig which includes the ASRock B365M Pro4 Motherboard, along with an Intel Core i7-8700K (Coffee Lake) at default clock speed of 3.7GHz (turbo boost 4.7GHz), as well as 16GB of GEIL Super Luce RGB DDR4-3600 ram in dual channel mode.
All tests were conducted at turbo clock speeds at a resolution of 1920×1080. High or Ultra settings enabled.

Using our large Noctua D15 CPU cooler, our idle temperatures was a surprisingly cool 33 degrees Celsius. Now that’s excellent.
Our load temperatures was reached a high 68 degrees Celsius, which is pretty low considering my average load temperature for our Core 7-8700K is usually around 75-80 degrees Celsius.
