I pull 350 watt with a i5 2500k oc and hd 7970 oc with 2 hd & 1 ssd ,2 drives and 4 memory banks.
At idle i have 170 watt.
Before i had 2 gtx 560 ti and it was 570 watt.
I also figured out that with bf3 if i putt the mesh quality to medium i can play everything on ultra , 2msaa, fxaa injector on ,dof 90 with vsync on and never drop below 60 fps.
This is with a overclocked hd7970 at 1125 mhz & memory 1645 mhz.
I read somewhere that it is cpu load that mesh ? I adjusted some settings of my cpu but it did'nt change a thing.
Can someone give me an anwser about this if this is true ?
