Dynamic Energy Saver: To test this feature, I installed the Gigabyte EX38-DS4 without the Dynamic Energy Saver software and took the power wattage readout for idle and load. I then overclocked it and did the same thing. After I had those numbers, I went back and installed the software and took the readings after I let it run for about two and a half hours. When I went to check the overclock results with the DES software, I was denied. The software prompted me that it could only run at stock frequencies which was a major disappointment.
Below are the stock power wattage readout for idle and load; with and without the Dynamic Energy Saving software installed.
The Dynamic Energy Saver shaved off about 20 watts in each test, which isn't bad at all.
