Well, for all you skeptics here, a little more background. I used a 'rebuilt' PSU for a year bfor I got another. I rebuilt it myself. This is what I do. I have something like 15 PSUs, 25 HDDs, 20 CPUs, 5 video cards, 40 sticks of various RAM, 4 different cases, and about 4 machines in various states of build. Parts are something I don't worry too much about. Also, my current machine never gets fully loaded, like I said. There is no way for me to load EVERY component all at once. I just don't have any need to.

If my PSU goes, I replace it. If it fries my CPU, I replace it. If it fries my board, I replace it. No need for all the theatrics guys. And we have gotten away from the original question. Is there ANY way to accurately calculate GPU power draw on a OCd video card?
