Dynamic Energy Saver:

To test this feature, I installed the Gigabyte EP35-DS4 both with and without the Dynamic Energy Saver software and took the power wattage readout for idle and load. I let the program run for about two and a half hours each time before I took a reading. After that, I overclocked the motherboard and attempted to repeat that procedure. Sadly, when I went to check the overclock results with the DES software, I was denied because the program can only run at stock frequencies.














Below are the stock power wattage readout for idle and load, with and without the Dynamic Energy Saving software installed.


The EP35-DS4 drew more power than the X48-DQ6, but shaved off about the same wattage.
