It's running a Jaguar and roughly an HD7850 in terms of power consumption and heat output...Nothing seriously big, I'd be surprised if either console uses more power than a single HD7970 or the like and honestly, I'd be surprised if it couldn't be cooled adequately quite easily assuming your heatsink isn't a stock Intel one.
