We fired up the AIDA64 System Stability Test for 5 minutes and found that we had an idle temp of 25-26C and a load temp of up to 26C on the individual CPU cores on the Core i7-8700K. The CPU Package Power was only showing 75 Watts!
We repeated the test on the Intel Core i5-8400 and found an idle temp of 25-28C and a load temp of up to 45C on the individual CPU cores. The CPU Package Power was showing that we topped out at 46 Watts on this system stability test.
Let’s wrap up this review!
