ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

We check out the more budget friendly Extreme4 version of the latest Gen3 Z68 motherboard series from ASRock.

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.
