This time we checked both idle and full power consumption.
The P35 will take a bit more power than the P965, but still less then any nForce chipset.
Compared to the ASUS P5K Deluxe power consumption is really low, it seems the VRM is very effective, even it is only a 4-phase design. ASUS does better with load, but still some more consumption. Of course the board does not have fancy features such as WLAN or second LAN, but we have disabled them on the ASUS boards anyways.
