GIGABYTE Z68X-UD3H-B3 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

Already impressed with the GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3, we look at the more aggressively priced UD3H version today to see if it can impress, too.

At stock the Z68X-UD3H-B3 puts out some great numbers coming in a little lower than the other boards we've looked at. Overclocked the CPU of course warms up, but it continues to be at a very comfortable level.

Like heat, the UD3H runs a little lower than the competition when it comes to idle power draw. Even at load it's the lowest which is pretty impressive.
