ASRock Z87E-ITX (Intel Z87) Mini-ITX Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

Power Consumption




It comes as no surprise that power draw at idle is a little lower than the other options. The simple fact is that we've just got less on this board compared to larger ATX ones.


Load comes in almost 20w higher than the ASUS option, but almost 20w lower than the OC Formula. Overclocking bumps the idle and load up slightly, but not by a significant amount.



Core Temperature




Idle temperature at both overclocked and stock is pretty good, load numbers at stock also line up with the Z87 OC FORMULA, which comes in a little lower than the Z87 Expert.


When overclocked, that load number skyrockets to an even 100c.
