Idle power issue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have overclocked my E6500 from 2.93 to Ghz to 3.66 Ghz, and I turn it on 24 hours everyday. I turn off the Intel power saving function so it always runs with 3.66Ghz for stability reason.

Here is the power data of E6800 with default 3.3Ghz which should have similar power consumption as my OC E6500 3.66Ghz:

My question is that how much power do you think my OC E6500 3.66GGhz is at with Idle and full load, and how energy would be different if I turn on the Intel power saving even I wouldn't?

Well it depends on your Vcore relative to that of the E6800. Since your chip was designed for 2.93GHz it likely requires more power clock for clock compared to the E6800. with power saving off you can expect probably about 60w idle and 75w under load. If you can run with power savings on you will have idle similar to the E6800. Though why is your computer on all day idling?

I haven't changed my vore, so I am using the default voltage. My computer usage is around 10% - 20% average 24 hours a day.
