On the power draw front, the numbers don't look bad, and because the overclock wasn't as strong, you can see it manages to sit only a little higher than some of our other boards when running at stock.

 

 

Core Temperature

At idle we can see the temperature is the strongest out of the batch while load lines up like normal. Overclocked, we can see a jump in heat, but again thanks to the fact that the overclock was a little lower, the heat doesn't run as rampant as we see it do sometimes.
