For our tests, we used a test rig which includes the ASRock X570 Steel Legend 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 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.
