The Intel i7 is definitely a hot affair. Though manufactured with the 45nm process, once you get it cranked wide open with its eight threads sending data to four real cores and four virtual cores, along with running the onboard memory controller at DDR3-2000 or higher, it gets pretty warm. Overclock the whole affair and raise the Vcore and QPI voltage, you’re talking heat that will bring lesser CPU coolers to their knees.
