We leave the system to idle on the Windows 10 desktop for 5 minutes before taking a reading. For CPU load results we run AIDA64 CPU, FPU, Cache and Memory stress tests and take a reading after 5 minutes. The power consumption of our entire test system (at the wall) is shown in the chart.
Power consumption was markedly lower than H370 equivalents, in part this is likely down to a conservative vCore that varied between 1.21-1.24 under load. It is worth noting that since the vCore voltage cannot be adjusted, you’d never be able to reduce power consumption further by under-volting.
The VRM temperature sensor “MOS” reported temperatures up to 59 degrees Celsius (ambient 22 degrees Celsius) after a 10 minute system stress test.
