is it using components that are normally found on Intel boards? nope.. just run of the mill asus AMD components
Dude shut up. I'm blocking you. This whole argument is ******* pointless just because you want to play semantics.
Hardline points CANNOT CONTEST UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES:
- AMD does not have a real temperature readout (whether it has a sensor on it to determine margin doesn't matter. The fact of the matter is that it DOES NOT HAVE A REAL TEMPERATURE READOUT, ERGO FAKE)
- A88X-Pro is certainly one of the top A88X boards, LIKE I SAID. I never compared it to Intel boards. I never said it was the toppest of all the tiers. I said it was one of the top A88X boards, and later clarified FM2+ board. This is a FACT. JSC has backed up that fact. Get your dumb Intel **** outta here b/c that's not what we're talking about.
1. look at my rigs and stop being ignorant.
2. where do you think this temp read out came from? do you have any idea why it is utterly in accurate under a certain temperature.
these chips are tested under-load in labs with very good thermal referencing equipment. how can something that is scientifically tested to be accurate be considered fake?
as for elitism, maybe, but that doesn't dispute the fact that higher quality components are found in the upper tier products. which the a88x-pro lacks.
misinterpretation of a review is not in anyway backing up a fact. so no this is not backed up, go read the article it mentions two components that it uses from the z87 product stack
everything said, on this platform you won't be core temp limited unless you've got shotty cooling. the socket temps, VRM and NB temp will hold these chips back. this is why you will need more than just AMD OD thermal margins. because it doesn't show you any of the other temps that will limit your chip.
