  • Summary: At idle, the Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 proved to be the most energy efficient mATX motherboard we've ever tested. It is an excellent choice for a low-power system (such as a server or media extender), and when paired with one of AMD's 45W dual core processors, it doesn't sacrifice much in terms of performance. Intel's desktop processors may offer more speed, but they also come with higher idle power consumption.
  • Pros: Outstanding idle/light load power consumption, Low price, Good HD video playback, Flexible fan control
  • Cons: Limited 3D performance, VRMs get very hot
