MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming Series (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming Series (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review

As we prepare for the launch of Haswell, we quickly move through a couple of Z77 boards. Today we're spending time with the Z77A-GD65 Gaming Series from MSI.

Power Consumption

Power draw numbers are pretty strong and you can see the idle number from MSI is the lowest at stock, while the load is equal lowest with the GIGABYTE offering.

 

Overclocking bumps both those numbers up slightly, but not by a huge amount.

 

 

Core Temperature

Like our power numbers, the temperature numbers are fairly standard when it comes to our stock testing.

 

Overclocked you can see they jump a bit, but under 80c at 4.8GHz is quite a good number.
