In the practical part, we ran the games at FullHD (1920 x 1080) resolution to avoid a bottleneck caused by the VGA, but we’ve also checked the 1440p. We used RTSS to measure the number of frames per second (average fps). The results presented in the graphs are the averages of the values obtained in 3 runs. Later in the article, we will show you this setup running at 7000 MHz. Now, for the last thing on this page. Thermal performance was measured with a FLIR.    




We ran HCI Design MemTest  6.0 for 15 minutes. The memory kit was operating with EXPO/XMP activated. The temperature was about 40° Celsius in idle mode. It reached 50° Celcius during the load, so very low for a high-frequency DDR5 kit. At the testing time, the room temperature was about 22° Celsius. It would help if you remembered that the temps should be lower with an air CPU cooler than a (typical) AIO (without the VRM fan).
