Phenom Quad Core

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I just got this new quad core phenom 9500 upgraded from my old Athlon 64 x2 3800 was wondering if any one knew any programs that would show me how many watts of my power supply im using atm. I have a 480 watt supply. Also got a cheapo cpu fan i used for the dual core before think i can still use it on my new phenom?

When measuring power usage, it's best to use hardware rather than software, something like this. But, that means spending money.

Athlon 64 boy, the device that thealmightyone posted is the one I use for such experiments. It works great. It's max current is 15amps and the price tag isn't bad at all.

Good luck

Here is an option, and it controls fans also, but it displays power usage on the faceplate so you don't need to climb back to the outlet to see how much power you are using.

There needs to be some kind of hardware built to be accessed by software to have a program to display this. As yet power supplies don't have that built in. Think Winbond etc.
