Power Draw Tests

Looking at Power Draw, we can see it falls between the ASUS and MSI offering with it being closer to the MSI which draws less power. Overclocked as you'd expect brings with it more power draw, but as always, it's nothing too major.



Core Temperature

Checking out the core temperature, the numbers are pretty good; the stock numbers line up with our other boards as you'd expect, but the overclocked numbers look strong with only 63c being seen at 4.72GHz.
