At the moment because we do rely on companies own software to tell us the temperature of the core, we're not placing as much focus on it as we would normally. You can see when we overclock, though, and throw more voltage into the mix there's a clear increase in temperatures.

 

 

Power Draw Tests

Looking at Power Draw, the ASRock A75 Extreme6 draws a little more power at both idle and load than the other boards. As we throw more voltage through the board, we do of course see our idle and load power draw increase, but it still sits at a pretty good level.
