Hi all,

I got the gigabyte ga-ex58-ud3r.

I've been told it has super high electricity consumption. Does it true?

This motherboard's copper traces are 50% thicker which results in a lower impedance which translates to a more efficient use of current.  So I would have to say no, it is not true.


Just out of curiosity, who told you this... a sales person?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

To include a reality check....anything on a computer is a small draw compared to other appliances in the house; air conditioning unit, refrigerator, etc. I have two computers running constantly in my home. When I come back from a 2 week vacation and we get our monthly bill there is barely a hiccup on the amount of power we save. I ditto dc3's question, sounds like someone is trying a sales technique on you.

Help Requests: If there is no reply after 3 days I remove the thread from my answer list. For further help PM me.
