Power Draw Tests
Overall power draw on the i5 3570k sits at the bottom of the pack which in this case is a good thing. You can see there are only a few watts difference between the two i5 processors. It's worth remembering the performance increase, though, we're seeing out of the 3570k compared to the 2500k, all at a similar power draw.
At idle we see that the 3570k sits in line with our other setups while load sits at around that 50c mark which we see out of our X79 processors. It's a little higher than the 2500k and 2600k, but nothing too major.
