Peak consumption

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm playing around with some stuff, and I want to know...

Would you say that 310W peak consumption for the system below is reasonable? (keep in mind this has no overhead)

*Radeon HAWK 6870
*i5-2500K
*4GB RAM
*1 HDD
*1 Case fan
*1 Intel CPU Cooler
*1 P8Z68-V

EDIT: Guru3D got 290W for it, though he had an i7 on it. It's about right then I suppose? Would it be safe to say that 310 + 50~100W is good for the above set up?

I calculated 310W for it, I want to know if you guys think this is a reasonable peak.

You are almost running an identical setup to mine. I was just running a power meter the other day and with a 4.9GHz OC, Mem @ 1833 1.65v and my 6870 OCed to 960/1150 i pulled down around 370-390 watts While folding with both the CPU and GPU.

So you're not far off with those calculations.

Okay, with your stats my calculator would recommend:

474W, absolute peak. darned, it's a bit high. I'm assuming you have the HAWK volted at around 1.2?

Do you know how much power your H70 consumes?

EDIT: w/o the OC on the CPU it recommends 393W. < is this result reasonable?

Actually I have a HIS reference. But yeah its at 1.22v. Not sure on the H70. And yes that 393w sounds reasonable.

Are you doing this cuz your needing to buy a PSU for your system?

Haven't got much to do really. I was really happy with it now, but I just screwed up a bit of the GUI, now it doesn't look as nice.

Anyway, thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.

Yeah, about 300W is the absolute peak you'll see outside synthetic benchmarks(furmark + Prime95 for example).. no_safe_HAVEN is talking about power at the wall not actual system draw, to get that you need to factor in efficiency and assuming 80% he's exactly there, 300W give or take.
