Disabling ULPS- Should I expect a singnificant increase in power consumption?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ULPS has been giving my some problems when running an overclock outside what AMD lets you and I'm strongly considering disabling it. The question is, since I run my computer 24/7 @ idle should I expect a significant increase in power consumption? I'm running 2 unlocked 6950's by the way and I'm hoping that after disabling ULPS I can run them at 6970 speeds.

not much, normal 2d clockdown saves the most

ULPS will just save the idle time on the 2nd card by turning it off.

Shutting off ULPS will just result in the second card drawing a little power, and the primary sucking down a little bit more. Even if you leave it like that for a full year, you'll be paying an extra few cents in electric bills. Maybe a dollar or two, tops. I'd hardly call it "significant."
