I used a modded Gigabyte X670E AORUS Master as the testing mainboard, with three thermal probes (K-Type) installed on its VRMs, chipset, and NVMe drive. I also monitor the ambient temperature, although I use a climate chamber, and have another thermal probe at the PSU’s exhaust and one at the chassis’ exhaust. I obtain the rest of the system temperatures, CPU, and GPU through the custom-made software I use for conducting all thermal measurements.

Please note that I use a different system for shooting photos, for the assembly page, and the aforementioned one for thermal testing.

I use a Powenetics v2 kit to monitor power consumption and every other important aspect of the system.
