    4790k Power Consumption


      Hello. So the other day I was using OPEN HARDWARE MONITOR to monitor my temps.

      My setup is

      Asus Sabertooth Mark 1 z97

      Corsair AX860

      i7 4790k w/ h100i

      GTX 980

      Nothing in my system has been overclocked and my ram is running at 1600 MHz.

      I got a weird reading that my i7 was comsuming 730 watts of power, which makes absolutely no sense. I am very paranoid right now. I have run multiple stress tests since and haven't seen anything weird like that again. Is this something I should be worried about?
