Building a DIY All-in-One PC with GIGABYTE's H77TN Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard

The All-in-One PC is going to be a big part of computing in the coming years. We take our first look at building one DIY style with GIGABYTE's brand new H77TN Thin Mini-ITX motherboard.

Power Consumption

Here we see one of the most surprising numbers. We knew that power draw would be low, especially when you take out the discrete video card.


The difference here is that 42w idle and 110w load are the numbers to power the complete system (including the touch-screen monitor), which is really quite amazing.



Core Temperature

When it comes to the heat side of things we expected the AIO PC to run warmer, especially when you consider we're moving from a AIO water cooling system to a heatpipe cooling solution.


Idle number still look good, but you can see load jumps up. With that said they're not at a temperature level that we'd be worried about.
