Current Bulldozer owner looking for 2600k load power draw? @ ~4.6-5.0

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey Intel heads, I have a 5.0Ghz + 8150 Bulldozer right now, but I'm pretty concerned about the load power draw on this chip. I know the 2600K seems to OC well and does very good against the 8150 in most benchmarks I'm concerned about. However, how much less in a real world scenario is the power draw when well OC'ed to 4.6+? I've always been a AMD fan, but I really am concerned that CPU load alone at 5.0Ghz all 8 modules, no GPU I am am pulling 600 watts. I'd like to know if maybe it is worth a swap to Intel on power draw alone. Anyone have some real results they can compare? Below is a pic of my full prime95 load on all 8 modules, just prime, no video. Can anyone please share a comparison? Some 2500K results would be nice as well, though it's not really a core for core comparison.

Thank You.

i have 2500K @4.7 - 92W under load (P95)
and 7.5W idle (offset)

I just got a Kill-A-Watt meter tonight. With my sig rig, full 4 core /8 thread Prime95 run it maxxes out at 230-240 watts for the whole system. Idle it sits right at 95-100. I ran a 7 thread Prime run with a Kombustor full GPU load combined test and it managed to hit 400w total for a couple seconds. Pretty big difference it seems. This is will a 4.6 OC on the CPU and slight OC on my unlocked 6950. My double loaded test(gpu+cpu) is close to 200w less than your CPU only. Take what you want from that.

I pull 600 from the wall with prime and furmark with my chip at 5.0ghz and my GTX480.

That sounds a bit closer to me, I would shoot for 5.0 if possible if I got one, for sure. Any

I just clicked the power usage link in your sig, great idea. I notice that the gaming load of a lot of those machines are close to mine, I get about 430-460W playing BF3. though my cards are only 5770's X-fired. It gives me a little piece of mind though to think, obviously I am not pulling a 600 watt 8 core load while gaming and I don't seem too far from most while gaming. C1E and C6 enabled I only pull 140 watts at idle on this setup, not bad either. It seems as though under "normal" usage i'm not to far above reality.

I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger in this Intel build to give it a try. I figure I will just try to sell the system I don't stick with.

Anyway, Looks I will need a board an memory to make this happen. Anyone one see any objections to the below?


CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9

Is DDR3 1600 good enough? Or are there major gains with higher speed memory? My findings are most of these memory chips are the same, just more lose timinings on the higher speed stuff.


Any reason not to go with this ASUS board?

ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard


Thank You.

CL9 at 1600mhz is fine for the everyday user, unless your going to be doing benchmarking or folding@home 1600mhz will be fine. The P8P67 PRO is a very powerful motherboard, and arguably the most commmon SB motherboard on this forum...for a good reason! 3.1rev is the most up to date version of that motherboard.
