Power draw is a real highlight on the new Ivy Bridge platform and you can see here the power draw numbers are impressive at both stock and overclocked settings.
Heat, on the other hand, isn't something that the new Ivy Bridge is dealing well with.
We can see that temperatures are higher than our other platforms at both idle and load and you can see load temperatures really sky rocket when overclocked.
This isn't bad contact or anything either, we've seen this out of multiple Ivy Bridge based processors on multiple boards. Talking to partners as well, we see the results are consistent.
