yeah it draws ~150W but one thing you have to consider too is the amount of A its draws on the 12v rail. My 12v rail, im assuming blew cause it was drawing 40A under full load, and thats a 550W psu.

edit:it draws 150W idle, and over 272W under load. oops. thanks skyline.

Also under GPU-Z, i noticed it was 40A under load, thats the max on the 12v rail on the corsair psu.
So what u r saying is that even at 40A rail it was max running at 75% load (your GPU).........seriously somethings wrong here...it shouldnt require more than 40A for full load

Yeah I may have gotten a defective card, but one things for sure. If i go from 75% -100% load, it'll max out at 40-42A. My psu was only rated at 40A under the 12v rail so that may have been the cause.

In my currently underpowered state of my ASUS EAH6850 (only 30A on rail) , its not able to run any GPU based benchmarks.......games all run fine even maxed out.......did u face any such problem?

Also am gonna go for Corsair TX650W (52A on rail)..dat should be enough

So u tell me how can 400w be enough and that is assuming his PSU is still able to chuck out the 400W specified.........definitely needs to go for a new one
