What wattage do you idle on?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Make sure it is the sig rig you comment on. Just curious what kind of idle temps you get.

Also post your load wattage and what kind of app you are running. I'm most interested in idle watts though.

idle: 137
load: 330 (metro 2033)

for my system, I would figure somewhere under 100W for idle, probably like 60-70W realistically.

sempron 140 @ 3.8
TA890FXE
one HDD
8800GTX
3 fans.

also, are you reading from the wall? Or being a bauss and factoring your PSU's efficiency at that load % and getting the REAL wattage?

Im at about 91 watts at idle, once the hard drives turn off. Maybe around 100 or so with my extra hard drives on.

~275W idle, under 30C on the CPU, under 45C for the GPU.
~450W+ with GTA:IV maxed out, ~43C CPU, under 71C for the GPU.

You have a pretty large idle load!

from one of my previous posts :

Just for a general reference, using Kill-A-Watt, here's the peak wattage pulled from my Sig rig (i7-930@4GHz, 1.264V and GTX580 @1700 1.050V):
Idle: 198W
3DMark11: 448W
Prime95: 344W
Kombustor: 460W
Metro 2033: 444W
