Whats the idle power draw of the E5620 Vs L5640 or L5640

Clearly of the two L chips one is a quad the other a hex. So one will draw more.

Each of the three chips is rated at the same voltage range, and we always talk about max TDP, but has anyone run power tests at idle?

Does the E5620 REALLY draw 80w at idle? I think not. but at idle would the E5620 draw more/less than a similar L series quad like the L5630? I understand there is a minor difference in clock speed, but I'm sitting at idle 95% of the time.
