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.
