Power Draw Tests




Looking at power draw we can see the new Ivy Bridge platform does extremely well.


We're under 100 watt at load when at stock and overclocked we see that power draw lines up with the 2600k when it's running at stock.


As for load draw that looks very impressive coming in lower than any of our other setups here.



Temperature Tests




The temperature side of things is something that hasn't done well when it comes to the Ivy Bridge platform on a whole.


At stock we can see the idle clocks aren't too bad, but the overall load clocks sit quite high. Overclocked we see our idle clocks sky rocket and our load temperature jumps to over 70c.


What's interesting is that we didn't get the rocketing 90c+ that we've seen out of our other Ivy Bridge CPUs we have tested in the past, which is a good thing. The problem is that this 3770k didn't overclock as strong as the others we've tested.
