Hello Global Warming

We were curious to see if testing power consumption would confirm our suspicions of the QX9770 running significantly hotter than the QX9650. See for yourself:

Power Consumption - Idle

At idle this thing is a beast, with the system consuming over 200W while the QX9650 pulled just over 150. It's almost as if EIST isn't functioning properly on the chip (CPU-Z confirmed that it was however).

Power Consumption - Load 

Under load the power gap is even more ridiculous, no wonder we had so many cooling issues with the QX9770.

Um, Hot? Is 3.2GHz Faster than 3.0GHz?
