Power Consumption and Temperatures

Power Consumption

The i5-7600K hardly consumes any power in idle scenarios and the load rating hits an average of 126.3-watts. After the overclock was applied, the power draw remains under 150-watts which is pretty impressive given the 5.1GHz frequency.



Unlike the i7-7700K, the more budget-friendly version doesn’t get anywhere near the 90C mark and I didn’t detect any sudden thermal spikes on any of the cores. The 62C average is astounding and I had to double check the stress test a few times to make sure the software wasn’t misreading the thermal values. It seems the lack of hyperthreading and lower voltage results in more consistent temperatures which shouldn’t degrade the CPU’s lifespan.
