Power Consumption

Power numbers are great, with the idle numbers beating out all the other boards at not only stock speeds, but also overclocked speeds.

 

Load numbers at stock line up with the ASRock ITX and GIGABYTE board, while overclocking, as always, sees a little bump.

 

 

Core Temperature

Temperature numbers at stock are also very good coming in lower than the other Z87 offerings at both stock and overclocked speeds.

 

At stock the load number is also lower than the other boards, while overclocking, as always, sky rockets that number. Looking above, though, you can see we're still under the 90c threshold, which means the CPU will not throttle back its clock speed.
