MSI Z270 SLI PLUS Motherboard Review

Power Consumption
Power consumption for a system is of course very important. To measure power consumption I used a killawatt meter. The idle test is taken on the Windows 10 desktop and the load test is taken while running a loop of Heaven Benchmark 30 minutes, which we feel is close to a typical gaming session. Keep in mind these numbers are for the entire system.

CPU temperature will all be based off your cooling solution. We are using the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme AiO cooler. Idle tests were taken on the Windows 10 desktop and load tests were taken running a loop of Heaven benchmark for 30 minutes.
