Power Consumption

Power numbers on the new Z87 platform look good as we saw in our original CPU launch coverage. Power draw jumps a little when overclocked with a slightly bump in idle numbers, while load numbers jump up a little more.



Core Temperature

Checking out the temperature of our new i7 4770K you can see that at idle we're sitting a little warmer than the i7 3770K at both idle and load. Overclocking sees no change at idle temperature, but you can see there's a decent jump in heat when it comes to load.
