GIGABYTE Z87N-WIFI (Intel Z87) Mini-ITX Motherboard Review - Temperature and Power

GIGABYTE Z87N-WIFI (Intel Z87) Mini-ITX Motherboard Review

Another Mini-ITX board arrives. This time it's the Z87N-WIFI from GIGABYTE using the Z87 chipset. It's small, affordable and not lacking in features. (TPE:2376)

Power Consumption

Power draw numbers see the GIGABTYE Z87N-WIFI sit above both the MSI Z87I and GIGABYTE Z87X-OC in both the idle and load department.

 

Overclocking brings a slight increase to the idle number and a decent jump to the overall load. Numbers on a whole aren't too bad, though.

 

 

Core Temperature

Looking at the CPU temperatures, you can see out of the box that they're impressive coming in below the other Z87 offerings at both idle and load out of the box.

 

Overclocked we see that the idle jumps up slightly and load numbers as usual jump up more significantly. Saying that, though, you can see the load numbers aren't too bad staying in the 80s realm and not hitting the 90c mark that we see so often.
