Not system wide wattage, But I'm asking how much just one card at 1.4v and 1350 core clock would pull in wattage from the wall?
Look at what PX is reporting for your power usage (power target graph). I did some math in a post a good while back that shows that the number PX shows is reasonably accurate. So just look at your power target graph in PX and go from there.
If your max target is 150% and the bios as a 900 watt TDP, then at 100%, you are pulling 600 watts, 50% is 300 watts. Remember that you'll still be off from actual, so if your doing this for PSU sizing or something, add some cushion.

Did some testing of the power draw on my rig, stock vs OC'ed and made two vids of it. Sorry about the bad quality and not commenting in English but I made this first for a Norwegian forum.
I don't think you need it. 1100 from the wall is probably around 1000 for the system and you have a 1200 watt PSU. Unless you are getting shutdowns or having voltage spikes, I would keep things how they are.Edited by Deaf Jam - 3/30/14 at 6:54pm
