    Would like to see a test with raised back and:
    - log with HWInfo (cpu core clocks, cpu temps, thermal throttling, voltage and wattage, gpu - same, pch)
    - warm up session for 15 minutes any game you like/cpu and gpu demanding game
    - tab out, reset hwinfo and play for 30 minutes
    - tab out and screenshot

    :D
    I learned this is most comparable way between multiple testruns since you get rid of the idle core clocks which blur the average clocks and temps.
