ASUS P9X79 Deluxe (Intel X79) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

We take the time to check out another of our ASUS X79 boards that we have on hand - the P9X79 Deluxe. Let's get stuck into it!

Power Draw Tests

Looking at the power draw side of things, we can see that the P9X79 Deluxe is drawing similar power numbers to the Rampage IV Extreme with both boards sitting higher than the MSI one. Overclocked we see those numbers blow out even more with an extra 100 Watt of power draw at load over stock.



Core Temperature

On the temperature side of things we can see that our stock numbers line up fairly close with each other, with the MSI one coming in a little cooler. Overclocked, though, we do of course see quite a jump in the heat.
