I'm hoping to at some point in the future (next year) actually build a device that will allow one to measure the power consumption of each major component in a computer system (mobo, cpu, hdd, ssd gpus) however that will be if my thesis for this will be approved by my university and if i can find the funding to test it out on a variety of systems once its in the prototype stage.
I know, I did say it would be an estimate.
That sounds like an interesting thesis by the way.

Edit: Just read your other post, +rep for the info. I should really have guessed that as I'm studying electrical engineering.

Yeah, I'm a Computer Engineering Technologist grad and will be doing my final year as a Computer Engineering student next fall. I actually took a course this past fall outlining why we went from the 4GHz stock wall to multiple processors and this is due to the increasing parasitic inductance and capacitance which is introduced from going to smaller dye sizes.

I really do hope i can do this thesis as there is a small niche market for this but if it'll get approved/support/funding from them or the help of others, who knows...

The numbers I got with that application using a Q9550 seemed to match numbers on Kill-a-watt pretty closely, I mean the difference between idle and load states power usage was almost the same on both.
