Conclusion: It goes without saying that power efficiency is at the forefront of many consumers’ minds today, and for good reason. Whether you are trying to save money or the environment – or both – it’s good to know just how much effort certain vendors are putting into their products to help them excel in this area. ASUS and Gigabyte are two that immediately come to mind that have put a into this, and I’m sure with their leadership, power consumption will consistently get better.
Pros: Superb overclocker., Cool temperatures despite passive cooling., Power efficiency is fantastic., Northbridge can utilize extra cooling with add-in card and/or water-cooling., Solid board layout.
Cons: BIOS can be a bit clunky., Price could be a tad better, but it’s great if a mail-in-rebate is taken advantage of.
