Power consumption is through the roof, and that is due to the crazy power consumption of the CPUs at 200W TDP each and then the added power consumption of the motherboard and chipset.

The motherboard's thermals are interesting, and we see that the chipset actually runs pretty cool compared to some other regions.

VRM of both CPUs under load are pictured above at full load. They seem to operate at decent temperatures, and that is partially due to the quality of components and the fact that the CPU's fan also helps cool down the VRM heat sinks.
