This isn't the whole sensors screen but they are the only readouts measured in watts:
Is this then the total wattage being used by cpu? It's a 4670k.
2. Again, I'd need to see a screenshot of the sensors screen. Though in most cases if there are 2 GPU VRMs reported, then the 1st one is for GPU core and the 2nd is GPU VRAM.
Again the only readouts measured in watts are GPU Vrm Power Out for the two VRMs:
It's an R9 290.
If I add these up it's roughly what my meter measures at the wall. I guess the difference comes from drives and fans.
