Totally Legit FLIR AM4 Motherboard Image Testing

First and foremost, I did not know that FLIR had a camera (FLIR ONE Thermal Imager for Android) for $205 nowadays to do thermal imaging. The last time I looked, the things were several thousand dollars, so thanks to "Nerdy" Nathan Kirsh of Legit Reviews for the heads up on that!

On to the point however, and that is that Legit Reviews has put some of the new AM4 motherboards to the test in terms of heat and what you should look out for. Certainly worth a look.

The take home message from doing this article is that the keeping the CPU digital power components cool is important, but don’t forget about the memory power controller as it too gets just as hot, if not hotter!
