Intel B250/H270 motherboards round-up: affordable basis for Kaby Lake

Seventh generation Core-boards without empty bank account


Power consumption

We measure the power consumption during two scenarios: idle (where we determine an average based on 5 minutes of idling) and under load, where we measure the maximum power consumption during Cinebench 15.

We find that the Micro-ATX-boards do not consume a lot of power in idle. The Gigabyte B250M-DS3H is clearly the most economic board when it comes to power usage. Under load this honour goes to ASUS, because here we find that the Gigabyte boards consume more power than average.
