PSUs aren't pulling their advertised wattage all the time. They are pulling whatever they need to pull in order to give the computer what it's asking for at any given time. For example: if the computer needs 500W and if the PSU is 90% efficient, then the PSU will pull 555-556W from the wall.

Not to question your knowledge, but how do you know how to calculate this information? Mind you this is just informational, I am not trying to insult your intelligence. Thanks again for the useful info.

The first place I began understanding it was in this article:

 

http://www.overclock.net/t/711542/on-efficiency

 

Then I saw this one as a follow-up:

 

http://www.overclock.net/t/872013/50-load-myth

 

Over time, I began understanding it better and better, and before long, I understood it so well that I could begin teaching it. It took a long time for me though. I don't know why. Today though, I just understand it as clearly as I understand some of the easiest things in life. lol It's crazy. :)

 

So yeah, I guess that's how I know.

If the PSU were 90% efficient while pulling 1480W from the wall, then the computer was pulling 1332W. Just sayin'. Not bad for an older 1200W PSU.

have the oc version in my gaming machine it has given me 3-years of effortless clean power without a single hiccup so it was just the natural choice to purchase two more discounted new old stock of these for the overclock bench i sort of need them just for the 8-pin requirements of quad 580 dciis 40a of course i did plenty of research before making this decision but it is nice to know someone out there knows the math its all about clean power
