My System Specs

Thought it was interesting data points so I posted it.
I had a 930 cooled by an H50 and those were about right for temps without issue. That was one hot running chip. My i5 2400 barely hits at full load on air what my i7 930 did on light duty.

Like Ena said, it is much more efficient design.
