VRM Area Thermals

It has been requested that we could list VRM temperatures. We could hook into sensors and start measuring. Now a good way is to look at the VRM area with a thermal camera. This way you can detect hot spots and/or worrying stuff. We run 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 not based upon the thermal image, but the max temp reported by the thermal sensors at the VRM stages. 

The thermal image visualises heat bleed, not measurement as most of the VRM is covered by heatsinks.

  • System setup: normal conditions/default settings / 100% CPU load on all cores

We see nothing that worries us.
