Power Consumption

Power consumption on the ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO is very strong at stock lining up with the GIGABYTE Z87X-OC which offered very low idle and load numbers.

 

Overclocking as you'd expect increases both numbers, but not by a huge margin. At load you can see another 70 odd watt is being used.

 

 

Core Temperature

At stock the heat numbers look good sitting towards the lower-end of the spectrum compared to the MSI and ASRock offering.

 

Overclocking doesn't change the idle much, but you can see that at load, we're hitting the 100c number, which we're seeing happen on most our motherboards when we overclock this high.
