Power Draw Tests

In the power department we can see that idle power sits a little higher, while load sits in the middle of the pack with our Extreme7 and G1.Sniper 2 motherboards. Overclocked, we see a bit of an increase, but nothing too crazy.

 

 

Core Temperature

In the heat department the Extreme4 looks good; we can see it's got a really nice, low idle, while load also looks really good. Like power draw, the heat goes up when we overclock, but again like power draw, it's nothing crazy.
