Hello,

I have a Gigabyte GTX 970 OC windforce (non G1)

I was wondering why my power usage is so low compared to people on youtube using a GTX 970.

In most games im averaging around 70 to 85 % and rarely goes higher than that. Even in Benchmarks as heaven 4.0

I am also playing it and im only averaging around 70's except for the menu screens, which does go 100+

I do have my Power target at 112% and running 1542 core and 7800 mem

In this video the guy is getting 100+ TDP usage in Assassins creed unity.

Card will only use as much power as it needs. Some applications take more power. Likely your hitting your maximum performance for your clockspeed before your power limit kicks in. It's not a bad thing. If you really want to see it jump load up Furmark or Kombuster and get a fire extinguisher ready.
