Power Consumption

Power draw numbers out of the box on the Z87X-OC are really good.

The idle is extremely low coming in at 73 watts and even the load manages to sneak in just a few watt behind the UD3H offering from GIGABYTE.

Overclocking as you'd expect sends it north, but you can see idle is still just under 100 watt.

Core Temperature

Core temperature on our CPU out of the box is great coming in lower than the other Z87 boards.

Overclocking boosts the idle slightly, but is still fantastic against the other boards being second to only the Z87X-OC when running at stock. At load, though, we see the temperature jump straight up to 100c.
