Volts to watts conversion help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Frist off. Not sure if this should be in cpu or motherboards or psu, but here goes.

How many watts would I be using if I was pushing 1.55-1.6v to my cpu.

I believe you would be drawing 100-110w on full load on an Ivy Bridge, a little more on a Sandy Bridge, more like 130.

Thanks for the input. Would it be any different for an Amd Setup?

It all depends on the CPU, AMD 8-cores can be very power hungry. Drawing over 400W if you put high voltage through them. For 4-core Ivy Bridge chips you're looking at 250W+ for very high overclocks.

I believe that is the system wattage, not the actual wattage of the CPU. I can't see a 4.8ghz Ivy pulling 244w on its own let alone a stock one pulling 166w. My work PC is an i7 3770 and my killawatt says it only pulls about 120w with the CPU on full load with Prime95.

Edit: Yes I was correct:

Power Consumption
For all of the performance tests, we disable all power-saving technology in order to give us a consistent set of results, and also best-case performance numbers - even though technologies such as Intel's SpeedStep might only take microseconds to kick in, that can make a difference in some tests.

However, for the power consumption tests we re-enable everything in order to get a real-world power draw. The power draw is measured via a power meter at the wall, so the numbers below are of total system power draw from the mains, not the power consumption of a CPU itself. Measuring the power draw of any individual component in a PC is tricky to impossible to acheive.

Idle Power Consumption
For this test, we leave the PC doing nothing but displaying the Windows 7 desktop (with Aero enabled) for a few minutes and record the wattage drawn from the wall via a power meter.

Thanks again. I am looking at keeping an 8350/20 cool. I was thinking of getting a hsf with 220w tdp. the tt frio. I have the original xig hdt s1283 and wanted something better. with out going to water.

I would avoid the Frio. Got one free with my case. Ended up giving it away.
Very annoying stock fans. Upgrade them to AP-14.

If you can fit a True Spirit 140 in you case (tall heatsink) performs well with stock
TY-140 fan for $39.95 shipped @Nansgaminggear

Thermalright has really stepped up its game with these new coolers. These are able to deliver better numbers than some water coolers which is an impressive feat.

Plenty of Reviews. 170mm tall.

thanks for the insight. But to be honest. I am not worried about sound lvl. I have 8 fans running full blast now. I am more worried about proformance. I use to have a delta on my xigy 964 that runn full balst at all time smile.gif
