Power Consumption Benchmark

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN
I think it would be nice to see some real world power consumption numbers by various OCN users with their latest PCs on extreme conditions to see efficiencies of different psus etc.. So i started one and would like to see your numbers..
All you need to do is that use a basic power meter like kill-a-watt or different brands or if you have a UPS some of them have this too.. Also there should be plenty of these on market.. And of course some power viruses to do some stress onto PC like furmark, prime95, linx, occt or whatever.. It's OK if you participate with more realistic 3D environment like unigine heaven, 3DMark11, Cryisis or whatever as long as you mentioned of it..
