The point about the chip running cooler is not quite correct. The 15C decrease in TPD is saying that manufacturers of HSFs dont have to worry as much about temps as they did before. That can be translated as the chip runs cooler, or that it is ok to run it hotter than before, or that it takes less voltage to run at stock speeds. In any case, that is a potential good thing for overclockers.

There will most likely be some that get great chips, and others that get sub par overclockers. That is just the way it goes. Guess we will all find out in coming weeks.
So that will put you at...36 cores in your house?
