The chip was run on a MSI Z390 MEG Godlike motherboard with 16GB of DDR4 memory and a Silver Arrow Extreme cooler from Thermalright. There were no game benchmarks done, but Cinebench was run at the processors stock speed of 3.7 GHz and overclocked to 5.2 GHz. That overclock was achieved without any issues using the Thermalright Silver Arrow Extreme air cooler.

The results were 1034 points at the stock speed and 1207 point when overclocked.
