My Kill a watt results

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there
Not a PSU topic but I posted this here just to let everyone know what my system is and how much power my system needs, to help others determine the power supply they need

here we go:
The system : my FXy system in my sig, tested without the monitor, only the case components, I did couple tests just to see what the system is using in different scenarios

first test setting :
Case Corsair 500R fans on Max (front panel control) 2x120mm and 1x200mm + LED on + back fan 120mm is always on max (@5000rpm)
AIO water cooling Corsair H110 on max (@1500rpm) 2x140mm stock corsair fans
folding@home using both GPU and SMP, downloading and steam updates and using chrome with 2 tabs just to load my RAM a bit, trying to simulate a fully loaded work day.

Max wattage was 208 :



2nd test:
Case fans on low, LED off
Corsair H110 fans setting on silent (@ 950rpm)
folding is off, GPU and CPU is running normal windows 7 background tasks

Max wattage was 128 :



Note: both CPU and GPU are stock, CPU is running Asus balanced setting (no oc) and GPU is running factory oc,
will do other tests with CPU OCed and other settings and scenarios i can think of my system may run at.

Now, multiply these readings by .80 to .85 for 80-85% efficiency. That will give you an idea of what your computer is pulling from the PSU.

Well, the quality of a PSU cannot be judged by its 80+ Certification. However, even so, this one does happen to be rather lousy.
