Power Draw Tests

Power Draw doesn't hold too much of a surprise. Comparing the 2600k and FX-8150, we can see that idle power draw is identical. When we look at load, we can see our FX-8150 comes in a bit higher.

 

 

Core Temperature

We're not paying too much attention to the numbers here, but if the load numbers hold true, then the FX-8150 runs nice and cool. Unfortunately, with the minimum we get, we just don't know if we can rely 100% on these numbers.
