CPU Overclocking

Here we see the same trend we saw with the 1600 and 1700 CPUs; overclocking them up towards 4GHz is easy and straightforward to achieve. While they have obviously knocked down the stock and boost frequency, these CPUs have XFR, so they should all be capable of 3.8-4.0GHz overclockers at reasonable voltages. Although, you are going to want a better cooler for the higher fixed voltage.

Power Consumption

Ah, here we have some more reasonable TDPs. Since power is measured at the 8-pin power input, and we can chalk 10W or so to TDP and the rest to boosts, we find that these CPUs abide closer to their TDPs than their "X" series counterparts.
