And yes @Solarity the Biostar X470GT8 looks like a really good board, ESPECIALLY given it's super competitive pricing. I just wish they would get away from the whole Racing / Vivid LED DJ crap as it's a bit gimmicky. But at it's price point there are no boards that compare. If I was on a budget I would strongly consider this board.
In all fairness it’s the only example I have to compare to since it’s the only board I have used for such testing. The comparison wasn’t to show which one was better, it was to see how’s your cpu reacts at a higher temp. 60c only seems high, idk if it actually is high for VRMs which is why I was asking if instability was experienced at that temp. It’s more for information purposes since I haven’t actually experienced VRMs running at that temp.
