ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact Review

CPU and VRM Temperatures

Although our overclocking efforts always try and push the CPU to its absolute thermal limits and thus this graph isn’t all that useful as far as the overclocking results are concerned, it does at least demonstrate how efficient the motherboard is and the kind of heat generated you can expect. When we’re limited by the abilities of the CPU itself it also shows how much/little voltage is needed to hit our silicon limits.

The VRM Temperatures show that when ASUS do allow us to view them they are incredibly good, which does make us wonder why certain motherboards in their range hide the VRM temps.
