http://www.coolermaster.com/power-supply-calculator/

 

Of course I noticed, but as I said, all of these calculators are extremely inaccurate.

 

Cooler Master's calculator is eXtreme Outer Visions's calculator. It's the exact same one as their current one. You can tell just by looking at it, but you can also tell by the fact that it says so at the bottom of the page.

 

Again, here's what "Cooler Master's" calculator (eXtreme Outer Vision's) says for my sig rig. Keep in mind that the ABSOLUTE HIGHEST power consumption I have ever been able to achieve is about 361W (about 425W at the wall), and I had to put a huge amount of effort into it. With that in mind, here's the absolutely ridiculous "calculation" made by this so-called "calculator":

34e10aa5_MyPSUCalcResult1hourPerDay.png 

 

 

That's with the "1 hour per day" Computer Utilization setting selected!!! Here's with "Always On (24/7)" selected, which is even MORE ridiculously-inaccurate!

Are you convinced yet that this PSU calculator is EXTREMELY INACCURATE?! So again, never ever ever ever ever ever use these calculators AND NEVER EVER RECOMMEND THEM.

 

 

Edit: I sincerely apologize for my anger. I'm actually mostly pissed off at eXtreme Outer Vision. You see, they switched to this god-awful calculator on August 1st 2015. The old one was FAR more accurate!!! Well, not with its default settings, but it was possible to make their old calculator reasonably accurate if you used the right settings. This new one is absolutely useless though.

 

Even if I tell the calculator that my 2500K and GTX 780 aren't overclocked at all (at 100% stock) and if I use the "1 hour per day" Computer Utilization setting, it still says this:

 

Load Wattage: 443 W
Recommended PSU Wattage: 493 W

 

I mean, SERIOUSLY?! That's utterly ridiculous. I'd never see my power consumption go above 300W if my 2500K and GTX 780 were at stock. Hell, I would bet I'd never see it go above 275W. Yes, I'm quite serious. Think about it: if I can't get my power consumption to be any higher than 360W with my 2500K at 4.5 GHz using 1.424V and my GTX 780 overclocked that high, then how would I ever see anything higher than 300W AT STOCK? Sigh.

 

Just to add insult to injury, both shilka and I wrote to eXtreme Outer Vision about this a full year ago AND NEITHER OF US RECEIVED A REPLY. Worse than that, no changes were ever made to this worthless piece of crap "calculator".

Right, once you start pushing the overclocks and voltage, its recommendations start looking overly hi ball.

And it's still stupidly-inaccurate even if you tell it your stuff is all at stock.

 

Just, don't use these so-called "calculators" anymore or recommend them to anyone. Please. I'm kind of begging you. It's very important. You don't want to give anyone incorrect information.
