Hi All,
Anyone care to comment am i likely to see higher temperatures with the hyperthreading chip, or would normal variation across CPU's be more significant.

Cheers.

There's more circuitry involved so assuming the same speeds and voltages, you are likely to see higher temperatures. How much higher? Hard to guess.

Its going to be in the same ballpark but generally a bit higher. How high, as was said it will vary.

Noticed core temp (don't know how accurate it is), 2600k using 7/8 more watts under full load (same VID, clock speed). So more power = more temp.

All good though, I have temps under control for the new chip.
