MSI Z77 MPOWER (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

We take a look at the Z77 MPOWER from MSI and see if it can stand out in the highly competitive Z77 market.

Power Consumption

Out of the box we can see that power levels are in line with the other Z77 motherboards. Overclocked we of course see power draw jump in both areas, but it's nothing too major.



Core Temperature

At stock we can see our CPU runs a little warmer, but nothing too high.


Overclocked we see idle jump slightly, but you can see the load numbers jump quite considerably. These 90c temperatures aren't uncommon when it comes to the latest crop of Intel processors.
