Intel Core i9-11900KF Hits 98°C, 250W?

Based on an AIDA64 stress test screenshot over at Chiphell, the Intel Core i9-11900KF is potentially shaping up to be one hot, power hungry beast. It appears that this chip was tested, at “stock” settings, on an ASRock Z590 Steel Legend. They shows the FPU stress test running, which will certainly push the boundaries of any CPU when it comes to thermals as well as power draw. This test can easily push a simple Ryzen 5 5600X into the 80’s and 90’s depending on cooling type, but this Core i9-11900KF is purportedly cooled with a 360mm AIO. Head on over to see more.
