Power numbers on the board look good and line up with where'd you expect them to be.
We're under 90 watts at idle and we're hitting an even 300 watts at load when it comes to stock performance.
Overclock boosts both those numbers slightly, but overall we're still under 350 watts at load.
Temperatures look good on the MSI board, we've got a strong idle at stock and at load we line up with our ASRock board.
When overclocked the numbers are pretty good as well considering this is actually the strongest overclock we've had so far; even if it is just by 20MHz.
