We have a look at our first Intel Z75 based motherboard and see how it differs to the Z77 chipset from a performance point of view.

Power Consumption

You can see that out of the box power draw between the Z77 Pro3 and Z75 Pro3 is almost identical at both idle and load with very little separating the two. Overclocking sees that no real change is present in the idle numbers while load does jump slightly to 334 Watts.

 

 

Core Temperature

CPU temperature is also again very close between both boards. As for overclocked numbers the Z75 Pro3 ran an extra degree warmer at load so again we really see nothing much separating the two boards.
