Steven's Motherboard Test System Specifications

ASRock Fatal1ty X99 Pro Gaming i7 Motherboard Review 55 | TweakTown.com

The motherboard doesn't have much regarding active lighting to improve aesthetics, but it should look good in a red themed build.

The new test bench is designed to test every aspect of the motherboard and IO. I have designed it so that the motherboard sits in a case and is cooled by fans always on at a constant rate to keep the conditions similar during all tests. I have cut out part of the case behind the motherboard so I can get thermal images of the back of the PCB where the VRM heat spreads. System and CPU power measurements are now digitally logged.

I am also using a Netgear Nighthawk X4 AC2350 for our network (including wireless AC) tests. The latest M.2, SSD, and USB technologies are also being utilized to test the maximum potential of the motherboards that are tested.
