Simple solution. Use intel chipsets with intel CPUs.
From what i understand, power regulation has nothing to do with the chipset (or the cpu in itself for that matter). It's up to the board maker to certify their board to be compatible with whatever cpu.
But i don't like the fact that AMD has to be making chips with TDP over 100W.
I was referring to data corruption issues on 680/780/790 boards. I think there is very little reason to buy nVidia motherboard for intel CPUs other than running SLI. nVidia top end motherboards are just as expensive as intel ones and have issues that Intel motherboards do not.
Regarding power consumption AMD has definitely fallen behind intel here. Kind of scary hearing about CPUs killing motherboards though.
