I would say that because of Intel's massive power draw vs. AMD you're getting lower temperatures, not despite them.
I can guarantee you that I'm not one of those people. I may never buy another Intel processor for as long as I live. I even stuck with my FX-8350 for five years and was fine with it despite Intel CPUs having better performance and power use the whole time. It's not like I suffered because my FX-8350 did all that I wanted it to and it was fine.
Meanwhile, people were blowing their money on Intel CPUs because they all had this stupid idea that they were somehow professional gamers with high-refresh displays. The upgrades were a joke because they were just re-hashed Sandy Bridge (and possibly still are) CPUs. Meanwhile, nobody really knows just how far behind we are in computer tech because of Intel's sandbagging but I guess that it's at least five years.
Intel can go pound salt as far as I'm concerned.
You know I too stuck with AMD through the FX "saga" I actually had 3 of them between 2 different PC's. FX8320 - FX8350 and FX9590, I've built few PC's for my friends with Phenom II X2 - X4 - FX and now Ryzen CPU's even my wife is running a 3700X and I had the 2700X and then 5800X I basically banned Intel for almost 10 years and nVidia for 7 but eventually you have to stop holding a grudge I got the i9 because it was hard not to for £409 I will keep it for a year or two and will go back to AMD for the next many years
