I am curious how many watts everyone is pulling. Be sure to post your setup.

For example, I just finished my Z97 build and it has the following consumption:

-i7 4790k (stock settings), Asrock exstreme6 z97, 750W bronze OCZ psu, (3) 7200 drives raid zero. All power saving settings enabled. Not sure if the raid drives spin down at idle.

- idle 40-45W
- CPU load about 120W - 150W (roughly)

with my 6850 GPU installed

- idle roughly 100W
- cpu load 200W

I have not tested with GPU load yet. I am mainly curious about idle wattage as that is where my PC spends most of its time.

I also have a trinity A4 APU setup that idles at about 20 Watts and can even stream a full hd movie at 25-30W. This is a very efficient itx setup though.

All power numbers are coming from a 'Kill-A-Watt" meter bought from Amazon.

My 4790k with a 290X uses about 400 watts when running prime 95 and valley simultaneously at stock speeds and voltages.

Interesting thread. Subbing/bumping.

Mine pull about ~220W at the highest gaming demand - including the 6W for my monitor. CPU is at 4.4GHz/1.265V while my GPU is at stock. Two HHDs, two Koolance 12025HBK fans, H100and my GPU has an after market cooler (I think it;s the Arctic Accelero II). I know the extra stuff doesn't add too much, but each HDD is ~8W at load and the fans are 2W at 100% (they never are).
