Here, we take a further look at the impact of our overclock, looking at the increased temperatures, acoustics, power draw, and lastly, the effect had on the average clock speed.
Average clock speed under load
The Gaming Z dealt with this overclock very well. The core temperature only rose by 1C, up to 67C, and noise levels rose by about 1dB – bringing total noise output just past the 41dB mark.
Power consumption also rose by almost 12W – an increase of 6% – while we also saw our average clock speed jump up by 72MHz, taking it past the 2GHz mark which is always good to see.
