Found this blog by way of Hardware.info. Some serious modding going on - but great results. 5.9W idle for a i5-3570K system.

Turns out that the blogger is (not surprisingly I suppose) a member here at SPCR. He's recently started a thread here at SPCR about this same project:

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=64995

I think I'll lock this thread so that the other one can be used to continue this discussion.
