I flashed my Titanium to a new bios today and started working my way back to a daily overclock - here is an example of temps etc on the Titanium at 4100mhz during prime 95 blend.
I looked at the screenshots you linked, very closely.
To be honest I'm impressed:
222 watts load on the CPU, but your v.core only moved by 8 milli volts (between min and maximum) at that load.
That looks pretty smooth to me.
I'd love to put that board under LN2 to see if it still holds up. (just pure curiosity).
Due to CPU's all being more energy efficient these days, motherboards should really be getting cheaper.
VRM's don't need to be as beefy.
(That 222 watt load was at (I presume) your maximum overclock).
Compare the TDP of the 1800x of 95 watts (or 65 watts of 1700) with 220 watts of the FX-9590.
Then you realise, VRM's only need to be half the size.
Prices we are paying should reflect this; but unfortunately its actually getting worse (more expensive), not cheaper.
Profit margins of these companies must be looking pretty healthy just now. Unfortunately at our cost.
Hopefully that's the point buildzoid (and gamers-nexus) was trying to convey in that video.
It's a good board, just the price
is unreasonable for a 6+2.
