Test System and Testing Methodology

The following setup is what’s used to test the AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI motherboard:

Operating System Windows 10 64-bit Pro
Processor+ Cooler Intel Core i3 8350K + Noctua NH-U14S
Motherboard AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI
RAM 16GB HyperX Savage DDR4
OS Drive 240GB SanDisk Extreme II SSD
Secondary WD Red 3TB
PSU ANTEC 1200W Quattro
PC Case Lian Li A70F

The Benchmarks are as follows:

  • Computing Benchmarks

Benchmarks are done in stock settings with turbo enabled. No changes have been made in the BIOS except both CPU fans at high speed.

    • 7 Zip Benchmark
    • AIDA64- CPU and Memory Benchmark
    • Futuremark Benchmarks:
      • 3DMark Sky Diver and Fire Strike
      • PCMark 8 Benchmark
    • Video Encoding Benchmark (720p and 4K)
    • MP3 Encoding
    • Cinebench R15

I have skipped Turbo speed benchmarks because the Intel Core i3 8350K does not have that option and it was tested on a B series chipset motherboard, so no OC benchmarks. I am posting the review of this CPU because we got it to test this motherboard- so why not?
