Power consumption

We measured the power consumption in two modes: ilde (where we determine an average of 5 mintues) and under load, where we measure the maximum power consumption during Cinebench 15.  

In idle the power consumption often corresponds with the featureset of the boards. After all, all the extra controllers consume a little bit of extra power. Under load we mainly see a higher power consumption with the boards that have an agressive turbo - the CPU is simply faster, which is of course seen when looking at the power consumption.
