For our tests, we used a test rig which includes the ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming 7 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.

Our load temperatures was reached a high of 79 degrees Celsius, which was within our expectations … and nothing our massive Noctua D15 cooler couldn’t handle.
I would recommend a decent AIO cooler with a 240mm radiator or larger … these Coffee Lake processor do run pretty hot!
