While it might be a smaller board, we can see it does an excellent job handling the heat with both load and idle numbers looking good at stock and overclocked. It's clear that the decision to drop maximum voltage as mentioned in page five to follow MSI's suggestion of not going above 1.4v does wonders for temps, as you can see a huge difference in overclocked load temperatures when comparing to the Z68A-GD80.

Power Draw Tests

Power draw on the Z68MA-ED55 is strong and at idle it sits lower than other boards here, even when overclocked. At load we see that it lines up with our other boards, though, giving us no real shock.
