Power Consumption

Even though focused on performance you can see out of the box the power draw isn't really any higher than our other Z77 boards. Load numbers are also extremely similar between our setups.

The only time we see a change is when we overclock which comes as no surprise.

Core Temperature

Looking at temperature numbers you can see out of the box they line up with our other Z77 boards for the most part. Overclocked we see them jump up, but at 82c, this is a fairly impressive load number as quite often we see boards get into the 90c area.

This probably has a lot to do with the fact that the settings are just perfect as they're designed by Nick himself via his profile.
