Why not just turn on eco-mode? It will lower the TDP to 65W. Just to be clear TDP does not equal power draw. The 3800x has a much high advertised TDP to make sure people know that they will need a 105w cooler to hit the advertised boost clocks. AMDs TDP ratings are kind of a mess. Both the 3700x and the 3800x come with the same wraith prism cooler (105w rating).
OK, actually I planned that in case newegg didn't ask me to return it. But they just ask me to return it after I reported them
they sent the wrong item.
