i5 6600k TDP question - Page 2

It's supposedly a "close" calculation of the real power draw of just the pure CPU power

Supposedly but almost always way too inaccurate to be useful, let alone usable. Add the fact that you can't tell if it's accurate enough without having a better way to measure like a physical power usage meter - if you do have one of those then you should just use it 100% of the time instead of playing with software sensor.

You also seem to forget that the TDP includes a max loaded iGPU!

I think the tdp number that hwinfo shows is accurate. you can control and monitor the amps to the cpu and also the voltage. which together gives a rough but accurate view of power draw.

The tdp is hard to hit with regular programs. but prime95 hits tdp easily.

Okay, hate to bring this one up again...But it still baffles me. I have had the pleasure of thinking I am this skilled computer guy and tried to delid my cpu. Well, I don't know if that one still works but I bent the hell out of motherboard pins. I think I didn't pay attention and glued the IHS on wrong. My mistake, My $500 down the drain. smile.gif

(PRO TIP: If you think you can delid but don't have 100% confidence in your ability, please don't. The chip without the IHS is sitting right here, mobo in it's box with to many pins to think I could ever make it a solid board again)

On to why I bring this post back up. Well, to my amazement I got a solid chip with horsepower still waiting to be unleashed. Currently sitting at 4.8ghz @ 1.3vcore. This puppy can push some power out. And the heat, its nowhere to be found really. After 3 hours of HWBOT Realbench stress testing, 66c steady as she goes. 30 passes of IBT on Very High 72c. However I did upgrade to the Kraken x61, 2 Corsair Air Series SP 140's pushing and the 2 fans that came with it pulling.

So on to this long convo about me destroying a wonderful board and a decent chip, to get some type of redemption with the chip I have now. Why does the Power Draw only show 11 watts. That's it. Never goes over, will drop down to 3 watts sometimes but mainly at 11. The reason I haven't pushed my chip further is because I lack the faith in believing the monitoring sensors are correct. idk.

TDP means Thermal Design Power. When you need to get correct heatsink for 130W TDP you use heatsink class that is supposed to work with 130W, and you use case that can remove at least 130W (Thus no ITX if you don't know what you are doing). The CPU itself can have well far less heat output, or MORE. 130 W TDP means NH-U15S and similar should work. 95W TDP means the heatsink shouldn't be shabby. Intel typically throws one TDP number on a family of CPUs, thus x99 CPUs typically have 130W TDP, with exception of highest one which has 150W TDP to suggest using MUCH better heatsink.

Overclocking can remove certain power monitoring stuff from MB, and you'd need to use wattmetr at wall and multiply by PSU efficiency to find correct power consumption.
