If power consumption or desire for unnecessarily low temps is a concern for you, then running a high clocked x299 setup is not for you.That seems a little... egregious? Your post is making me re-think my foray into X299. Do the KBL-X CPUs have similar TDP / power usage issues as Skylake-X?
That said, 275w sounds a little high...although he could be running an AVX test and his AVX offset may be less than mine.
