GIGABYTE E350N-USB3 Fusion Benched, Overclocked and Examined - Temperature and Power

We get our first taste of Fusion from AMD. How's it look? What can we do with the new platform? And has it got a future?

Power Draw

Power draw is impressive and it didn't take me long to figure out that the 1200 Watt Corsair PSU was a little overkill. You can see, though, how the platform is going to do well in a notebook environment with those low numbers.



System noise

At stock the system noise is excellent; it really isn't audible outside the general room environment. Overclocking does bring the noise up a little at load and the HD 6970 manages to be a little louder again on the system, but overall volume isn't an issue. It would've been nice to see GIGABYTE utilize a passive cooler, though. I suppose with overclocking options in the BIOS, an active cooler is a better option.
