You are right, any ideas how to determine how big this effect is?It matters, if a processor outputs say the same 200W and uses the same cooler but one is smaller and the other is larger in area. The smaller area one will be harder to cool and therefore run hotter than the larger area one. This is why CPUs which are usually smaller than GPUs in die size are harder to cool with lower TDPs than GPUs even when delidded and direct die cooling negating the impact of an IHS being used.
