Load Temps

Load temperatures reached a high of around 51 degrees Celsius, which is more than acceptable. The included Wraith Prism CPU cooler from AMD did a great job of cooling the Ryzen 7 3700X. You can of course use other CPU coolers you see fit. A nice AIO cooler with RGB will look nice with this motherboard.
