Power Draw Tests




Out of the box the MSI offering offers a lot of strong power numbers when compared to the Rampage IV Extreme. The same goes for load. You can see as we move further up the MHz table, though, those numbers really begin to change with the difference between stock and 5GHz being almost an extra 170 Watt.



Core Temperature




A lot like power, you can see the temperature head north the more we overclock our CPU due to the extra voltage we're putting through it. We're not too sure if 5GHz is what you'd want to run at daily - 4.6GHz looks a lot more attractive.
