    Default Asus EZ Plug on Crosshair V Formula-Z

    I just wanted to share a little result I just played with and was pretty impressed with. Asus EZ Plug is a molex connector built into their higher end boards to help stabilize power with SLI and Crossfire configs. I was wondering if it was a gimmick, and if it made much difference with only dual cards, seeing as it was more designed for 3 and 4 card setups. I used the furmark test and monitored the gpu power percentage. Without the plug, my dual Gigabyte gtx 670's where fluctuating from around 90% to 105% pretty consistenly (I saw a drop as low as 87% and a spike as high as 107%). After plugging in the easy plug, the power range tightened up to a massive 97% to 100%! The lowest I saw was around 96.6% and the highest was around 100.3%. 15% power fluctuation dropping to 3%? I'd say that feature is far from a gimmick.

    This also made me particularly happy with the choice to go with AMD. Since I was building a budget pc, to get this kind of feature with Intel would have cost me closer to $400 just for the board, and I was able to grab the Asus Crosshair V Formula-z for $240, and that was without any discount. I absolutely love the quality of Asus boards, and I'm extremely pleased with the features I have!
