ASUS Maximus IV Extreme (Intel P67) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

The Z68 might've replaced the P67 chipset, but with loads on the market and more options than Z68 at the moment, we look at the Maximum IV Extreme from ASUS today.

Core Temperature

At stock our CPU temperature lines up with our other boards with not much separating them. Overclocked, we see the heat level of course go up due to the extra voltage, but it does run a little cooler at load which is pretty good considering it's at the highest clock speed.

 

Power Draw Tests

Power draw doesn't hold any real surprises at either stock or overclocked. If you're buying a board like this you'll no doubt have a good quality power supply to go with it, so I can't see these numbers being an issue.
