Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

Having looked at the X58 Sapphire offering a few months back, we now see what's going on with the P67 one.

Core Temperature

Temperature is very good, but you can see the extra heat that's indeed generated when we start to push 1.5v through our CPU to achieve that much higher overclock. The Corsair H70 is a really great cooler, though.

 

Power Draw Tests

Idle power draw was extremely low. I had to double check and then triple check it. Our load numbers are pretty good, but you can see when we pump 1.5v through our CPU to overclock we do get a healthy jump.
