For our tests, we used a test rig which includes the ASRock Z490 Steel Legend Motherboard, along with an Intel Core i9- 10900K (Comet Lake) at default clock speed of 3.7GHz (turbo boost 5.0GHz), as well as 16GB of Thermaltake Toughram RGB DDR4-3200 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 74 degrees Celsius, which falls within our expectations …
I would recommend a decent AIO cooler with a 240mm radiator or larger … these Comet Lake processor can pretty hot with a TDP of 125W!
