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, and of course whether VRM temperatures are a factor. We did use an infrared thermal probe on the board and the VRM area was not hot at all, it really annoys us when we cant shout about things like temps because they have to our eyes been purposely hidden, even their own software didnt show it and there was no visable VRM option in the BIOS either (the Strix E did)

One correction on page 2 (up close): "Between the two PCI Express slots - the uppermost armoured one being PCIe 4.0 whilst the black one is PCIe 3.0 - we have the heatspreader for the PCIe 4.0 M.2 drive that will bring you blistering transfer rates."

That is the PCIe 3.0 M.2 slot. The PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot is the one closest to the CPU and does not come with a heat spreader, presumably because Asus expects that the PCIe 4.0 SSDs will come with their own heat spreaders. Corsair - which is part of the "TUF alliance" with Asus - deliver their MP600 series PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs with integrated heat spreaders. Seagate's ZP500 does not come with a heat spreader, so you'd probably have to buy one if you plan to use that SSD on this motherboard.

Gigabyte's AORUS PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD also comes with its own heat spreader, which means you'll have spare ones, as Gigabyte's B550 motherboards come with a heat spreader.Quote
