Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe Review

For this page we test with a 2700k and the new 3770k. We also include an FX8150 system merely as a point of reference.

We use Cinebench R11.5 64 bit to measure power drain at the wall.

Processor: Intel Core i7 3770k & Intel Core i7 2700k
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe
Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 13
Memory: 16GB G.Skill @ 2,400mhz 11-11-11-31.
Graphics Card: ASUS GTX 680.
Power Supply: ADATA 1200W.
Optical Drive: Asus BluRay Drive.
Chassis: Cooler Master Cosmos 2.
Monitors: Dell U3011, 3x Ilyama ProLite E2472HDD.
Boot Drive: Kingston SSDNow V+200 90GB.
Storage Drive: Patriot 240GB Wildfire.

AMD FX 8150 Black Edition
Motherboard: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7
Cooler: Noctua NH D14
Memory: G-SKill Ripjaws 1600mhz 8GB (2x 4GB)
Graphics Card: HIS HD6970 IceQ Mix
Power Supply: Corsair 850W
Boot Drive: Intel 40GB SSD

The new 3770k is clearly very efficient at reference clock speeds, demanding 27 watts less than the same system with the 2700k installed. The AMD FX8150 Black Edition is a power hog, demanding 242 watts.
