Yes today If i get the ok of the company i working with i will share infos
I hope they're just being conservative with that TDP since the prototypes could handle a stock 5820K(140W).
And this is the reason why we specified it not that high. For the 5820k DIE and heatspreader are soldered but modern CPUs uses TIM. Furthermore the 5820k has a bigger DIE so the heat will be distribute over a bigger surface. Also modern CPU are not limited by the TDP they are limited by the motherboard. On one board a i7 8700 can run with a TDP of 120W and on the other with 150W.
Conclusion: It is harder to cool a 8700 (default 95W) than a 5820k (140W)
So it is very hard to find a TDP that matches all CPU generation from all vendors.
