MSI Big Bang XPOWER Intel X58 motherboard review

Power consumption is important to a wide audience today and we measured the drain at the wall when idle and loaded. To load the system we ran a game of Crysis which stresses both CPU and graphics under real world conditions.


This is an interesting result because we can clearly see the benefits by using Hi-c Caps on the MSI board. The system takes around 18 watts less under load when compared directly with the eVGA product.
