Considering the real power consumption, these are going to have to be really performing cooling solutions.

I don’t typically do air unless I live in a hot place or the system is in a hot room, but those 6 core12 thread systems are like the sun.

Never mind the fact that intel has stopped bundling coolers with K CPUs years ago.

Which one of these 6 numbers would you consider "the real power draw" for somebody that just buys a prebuild or builds their own system for everyday use?

Intel doesn't include coolers with any of their k sku's. You don't need a crazy cooler for the non k sku's since the power consumption really only goes nuclear for sustained periods when you remove the limits and overclock.
