GIGABYTE A75-UD4H (AMD A75) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

Having already previewed the GIGABYTE A75-UD4H, we now take the time to see what the board is really capable of with our A8-3850 in hand.

Core Temperature

Because Core Temp doesn't work with the current crop of A series APU we have to rely on companies own software. For stock speeds the CPU temps line up with our other A75 offering. Of course, when we overclock we do see the temperature jump up in both idle and load.

 

 

Power Draw Tests

We again see at stock the GIGABYTE A75-UD4H lines up with our other A75 offering. Overclocked, though, we can see a big jump in power draw; idle almost doubles and at load we see almost another 100watt of power draw. Again, though, it's no surprise as we do indeed run more voltage through the whole system which is going to in turn increase the power that is drawn.
