Power Consumption

Power draw is one of the biggest benefits on the new Ivy Bridge platform and we can see it sits below most of our other settings, albeit a little higher than the ASRock Z77 Extreme6.

 

When overclocked we of course see a jump in power draw, but the numbers continue to still look very strong.

 

 

Core Temperature

While idle temps on the ASUS board are looking better we can see that load is up, overclocked those numbers climb even higher, but we're not seeing the 90c+ temps that we've seen on some of the other boards that we've tested.
