+ - Why Is Ivy Bridge Hot?

Submitted by
I.M.O.G.
I.M.O.G. writes "PC enthusiasts with Ivy Bridge engineering samples, and reviewers at large have come to the consensus that Ivy Bridge is a slightly warmer chip than it should be. An investigation from Overclockers.com found common thermal paste between the CPU die and the Integrated Heat Spreader by removing the IHS of an Ivy Bridge Core processor. Typically on modern Intel processors the IHS is soldered to the die enabling more effective heat transfer."
