Actual Power Use

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was kind of shocked, I got my Kill-A-Watt in the mail yesterday and thought it would be a good idea to measure my rig. Just the tower itself, fired up 3dmark and hit bench.

I'm assuming these things are traditionally pretty accurate? It was telling me that my sig rig was pulling an average of around ~280w when going through the benchmark. I didn't think it was really that low, take efficiency into account at 90% and that's only a ~252w DC load..

Hmmm are you sure you have it on Watts and not the other settings (VA?). Doesn't seem right at all in my opinion.

That's kind of low. I'd expect at least ~500W AC.

Pardon the crappy quality and my foot


Still kind of confused. CPU is at stock but RAM @ 1800 NB 2800.
Seems to have gone down slightly since installing new motherboard..
