Power Consumption

We thought the three A75 motherboards would deliver very similar power consumption results, but there's a greater variation than expected. The Gigabyte A75-UD4H consumed the most power under load with a consumption level of 154 watts while at idle the board used just 52 watts.

Although the Asrock A75 Extreme6 used slightly more power when at idle, its load consumption was considerably better, using 8.4% less power. However, the Asus F1A75-V blew them both out of the water with an idle consumption of just 44 watts with a load consumption of 137 watts.
