First you have to define the word stock since running the 9900k at default settings it uses less power than a 2700x. While cheating motherboards run the processor in an overclocked state. I also want to add my 6700k uses 180w @ 1.4v when overclocked to 4.8Ghz so we can see how efficient the Core series has come since the release of the 6700k without any IPC improvements.
