For our tests, we used a test rig which includes the ASRock X570 Creator Motherboard, along with an AMD Ryzen 7 – 3700X at default clock speed of 3.6GHz (turbo boost 4.4GHz), 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.

Load temperatures reached a shockingly high of around 89 degrees Celsius, which was a little worrying for me. However, the Noctua NH-D15 did a good job of cooling the Ryzen 7 3700X. If you ask me … I would highly recommend you use a decent AIO cooler.
