Power Draw Tests

Power draw on the MSI Z68A-GD80-G3 is good and we see its idle sits nice and low while its load also sits a little lower than the competition. Of course, when we overclock and throw more voltage through the board, the overall power draw increases, but it's nothing too crazy.

 

 

Core Temperature

Temperature on our CPU using the MSI Z68A-GD80-G3 falls in line with our other boards with again no real surprises. As usual, we do see those numbers jump up a bit when it comes to overclocking.
