Power Consumption Test




Power draw on the ASUS offering is up in both the idle and load department when compared to our ASRock Z87 board. It's a little hard to compare them directly from a chipset perspective, though, as the ASUS SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1 does have a lot going on with it, so it will, in turn, draw more power.


Overclocking increases power draw slightly, but you can see that it's not a massive amount.



Core Temperature Test




When it comes to the heat side of things, you can see that the idle number is pretty standard across the board. As for the load, you can see that our ASUS sits a little higher than our previous generation Z87 offering.


At our maximum overclock, you can see we're getting near that 100C mark, which is pretty normal due to the excess amount of voltage.
