In our original launch coverage we saw some massive numbers come out of power draw. You can see the new GIGABYTE offering looks a lot more attractive with much lower numbers on here.

 

 

Core Temperature

The new 3960x continues to be a warm running CPU, though, and you can see that here when we're at both stock and overclocked. Fortunately, at least the idle temperature continues to look good when overclocked thanks to EIST bringing the CPU in at 1.5GHz when we're just idling away in Windows.
