Power Consumption

Power draw numbers on the GIGABYTE offering are very strong with the idle number being the lowest out of the bunch and no change being seen when overclocked.

 

The load number is also the lowest out of the group here out of the box and even overclocked we see that the number doesn't jump by a huge amount.

 

 

Core Temperature

CPU temperature looks good with this being the lowest load number out of the box. Overclocked we can see the idle temp is almost the same, but load jumps up massively and hits the 100c mark.

 

This isn't the first time we've seen 100c hit on the latest Intel chip and it probably won't be the last.
