Review: Value board an overclocker's dream?



Power-Consumption:

While the board suffers in overclocking due the VRM design, it shines on idle-power consumption. This is the first board ever which cracked the 100W barrier and stayed below and beat MSI P35 Platinum by considerable 12W. 3-phases are more efficient in idle, but suffer when overclocking reaches high levels, because it needs more amps, thus the CPU temperature is much higher compared to 4-phase VRMs. When the CPU is idle it does reduce the VCore, but be careful as this may cause instabilities.
