Hi, anyone could please tell me what's the power consumption of Intel Core i3 8300 and 8300T when idle?

8300T is not the same as the 8300.

I couldn't find any reviews.

Isn’t it basically the same except obviously capped to 35w maximum sustained power draw?

Well, the power draw is the question.

I guess you could try to extrapolate from similar chips.

Hence my answer :) iirc last time I saw anyone looking at this - a few generations ago! - they didn't do anything like picking specially efficient chips out for the T's.

They just restrict the maximum sustained power draw to the much lower limit.

If you are looking at power efficency i would recomend the I5-7400, even trought it is a 7th gen CPU, it is a very power efficient thing.

I got 25W idle, 30W youtube, 55W CPU load (OCCT), and 60W CPU+IGP). And you could improve that with a 80plus psu.
