ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance (Intel H87) Motherboard Review

We finally check out the new Intel H87 chipset via the ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance motherboard. Let's see how this well priced board performs.

Power Consumption

Power draw at idle and load sits at the lower-end of the scale. Overclocking brings a bump in both the idle and load, as you'd expect, but with 328 Watt being seen at load with the setup we have here today, we're not too worried.

 

A good quality branded power supply in the 500 Watt+ realm would do the job perfectly.

 

 

Core Temperature

Stock CPU temperatures look good with both low idle and load numbers. Overclocking of course causes both numbers to jump, and you can see that at load we're seeing 98c.

 

A very high number, but a number we're used to seeing on the 4770K when it comes to these kind of clock speeds. At least it didn't hit 100c which is when the CPU speed begins to throttle back to reduce its temperature.
