VRM Area Thermals

VRM Area Thermals

Lately, someone requested us to list VRM temperatures. We started measuring it. To do that, we ran the FPU and CPU torture test in AIDA. The chart plot shows the maximum VRM temperature measured at the thermal sensor level. The VRM temperatures you see listed in the chart are based on the max temp reported by the thermal sensors.

  • System setup: normal conditions / default settings 
  • We start the AIDA FPU Stress test, leave it running for 15 minutes, and note the highest temperature measured on VRM sensors.


The highest reported temperature was 73 Celsius degrees. That's actually nice for a B-chipset motherboard. We think that even 3900X or 3950X would be fine here (without the overclocking).

EDIT - We've put the measurements taken with pyrometer and thermal probes connected to the Lamptron SM436 PCI Fan/RGB controller and the values (idle/load) are put in a chart and will continue using that for the next motherboards reviews.
