The ASRock AB350M Pro4 does a good job of dissipating heat. Though it is not the best I have seen, it should stay stable in hotter climates. Power consumption was good and around what I was expecting after testing the Taichi Ultimate. As is often the case, power draw under load actually goes down when the voltage is set manually even with the small overclock.
