Enough of a difference in power to be a big deal for Facebook, though. Mine are C1 (SR0H8) stepping, so no VT-D support, but I don't really need it.
That's not bad at all. My 5960x draws about 450w by itself when under load. (After mobo losses etc). Overclocking really isn't the best thing: p

Uh... 150W I can accept, but 450 would literally melt the thing in under 10 seconds... I don't think you could go that high even under LN2, because the effective surface area available for cooling won't allow for that much heat flux with "ordinary" materials. And I mean the chip's surface, not the heatspreader.

Not 450. 250w peaks. wasn't paying attention. I should really go to bed
