ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review
It's been a while since we've seen an ASUS board, but today we're checking out the P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt.

Power Consumption




Looking at the power draw numbers you can see idle is a little higher. We put the extra couple of watts down to fluctuation. Load numbers are identical with two other boards and three watts higher than the lowest one.


Considering out of the box performance is consistently ahead, these are some impressive numbers. Of course overclocking brings some extra power draw due to the increase in volts, but at load we're talking just about 10%.



Core Temperature




Heat numbers at load are pretty similar for stock performance and at idle sit in the middle of the pack at low 30s. Overclocking does little to the idle heat, but you can see at load we're tipping just over 80c. Overall, though, this isn't a bad number at all considering the solid 4.7GHz clock speed.
