I compared the mainboard with a previous generation, Asus Prime Z690-A, which uses DDR5 RAM. It has a close price, currently at $240, so some users might opt to get a z690 mainboard, allowing for overclocking, which is compatible with the newest CPUs, instead of a B760 mainboard.

  1. Sorry, but those numbers cannot be correct. B760 has no OC, enforced power limits, thus 241W to the CPU for a max of 56 seconds.
    That would explain the VRM and CPU temps, because with that VRM, that cooler, and 350+W into the CPU, the VRM and CPU temps would not be that low even on Mars.

    1. I have powenetics measuring CPU power consumption in real-time, throughout all tests. In gaming, the PSU doesn’t have to go full power, while in apps the difference is 10%! So the numbers are correct, yes.
