So far, I've have 5 core i7 chips, 3 CO's and now 2 DO's. They have been all over the map with temps. They are certainly hotter than any other chips I've owned. Though I would say it's relative to performance. For instance, my current DO runs mid 60's at 4.2ghz 1.26v on full load under water, and it will crush anything out there in benchmarks.
