The Budget P55 - Jetway Kuroshio BI-700

By Vincent Chang - 7 Feb 2010

Temperature

Temperature

A surprise result was the temperature reading for the Kuroshio. While this Jetway board came with heat-pipes, we weren't expecting it to beat some of the more established brands. However it appeared to be the case, with the MSI closest to the Jetway in this section. At 34 degrees Celsius, it's hard to beat the Jetway. Perhaps another contributing factor is the board's low component count as it's a board with a very simple design.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the Jetway Kuroshio was also very competitive. At peak, this board drew the second least power reading. Do note that many of the other boards have more features than the Jetway's plain configuration, which could contribute in a higher power draw.
