GIGABYTE Z77-HD4 (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

GIGABYTE Z77-HD4 (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review

We check out an aggressively priced motherboard from GIGABYTE in the form of the Z77-HD4. It surprised us in a good way during our overclocking tests.

Power Consumption

Checking out the power draw numbers you can see at stock they're impressive with the Z77-HD4 having the lowest idle and load numbers. Overclocked you see a slight jump in both those numbers, but overall still very impressive numbers.



Core Temperature

Checking out the temperature numbers on our CPU you can see the idle numbers at both stock and overclocked are very impressive. At load we see that the Z77-HD4 is putting out the coolest at stock while overclocked we of course see a jump in heat as we're sitting just over 70c at load.
