Core Temperature

At stock the Maximus IV Gene-Z is running a little warmer than some of our other setups, but nothing unusual. Overclocked we do see those temps jump up and that comes as no surprise as we always say due to the fact that we're running extra voltage through so many parts of the system.

 

 

Power Draw Tests

Power Draw sits a little higher on these ROG boards as you can see both Maximus boards drawing a bit more at both idle and load when compared to our non ROG board like the P8Z68-V Pro and MSI Z68A-GD80. When we overclock you can see that power draw does indeed jump up, but it's not at any kind of scary level.
