Since this is a low power HTPC inspired hardware combo, I wanted to measure how efficient it was when operating in different states. All of the scenarios were conducted using a WattsUpPro power meter using the average power consumption over five minutes for each run.
To gauge how hot the system will run, I wanted to record the temperatures during idle, load and when overclocked. To simulate the load I ran SuperPi and FurMark 1.8.2 at the same time stressing both the Atom processor and the ION GPU. To measure the temperatures, I used the ASUS PC Probe II utility for the CPU and the motherboard and FurMark for the GPU temperatures. The ambient temperature was kept at a constant 22°C during the entire test.
