Used a wall socket Watt meter at the time.
that was from the wall, if
the PSU efficiency is 85% then it would be around 650w for your rig and with that CM PSU im not sure it would provide 650w that well, however a a much better quality 700w PSU would power your rig just fine. That's why your PSU started to smell:

BTW how did you draw almost 800w from the wall with your setup?? that's crazy.Edited by munaim1 - 8/16/11 at 1:06pm
