BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z77X (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

By: Shawn Baker | Socket LGA 1155 in Motherboards | Posted: Feb 25, 2013 5:47 pm
TweakTown Rating: 91%Manufacturer: BIOSTAR

Power Consumption




Power draw out of the box is strong with the BIOSTAR offering having the lowest idle and load numbers out of the lot. You can see when we overclock we get a big jump in the numbers. When overclocked you can see the idle number almost doubles.



Core Temperature




Temperature numbers also look really strong with again the BIOSTAR offering running the lowest numbers out of the Z77 group when it comes to stock performance.


Overclocking increases those numbers a decent chunk, but the idle number still looks good. We can see at load we're hitting just above 90c.While okay, we really wouldn't want to go much higher than this.
