System power draw under load (Prime95+ Blend and FurMark 1080p)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I did the measurement last night. My system (with the two monitors) draws nearly 420W from the wall socket under Prime95+Furmark. Max at boot 200W.

Nearly the same system, just with an FX 8300 clocked at 4.4GHz drew about 550W. Boot power draw was at a max of 270W.

 

Can you do the same measurement?

What did you measure with? What monitors and graphics card are you using?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

200W idle? I get ~60


Alpha X570 VRM + Features list (PM me if you want to help)

Will prob be making an X570 "tier" list when that is completed.

I'm pretty sure if a FX-83XX dissipated 550W, you'd have a nuclear meltdown.

Thats whole system i think. FX chips can get quite hot. TR-levels, not quite skylake-X though (600W+ on direct die water)

A wattmeter that I plug into the wall socket and connect my power strip to it. Was some $20 in a store, I have it for a few years.

No, not IDLE. Peak at boot or should I say during boot.

Everything is mentioned in my profile.

And it wasn't heat dissipation but total system power draw.

The whole system, yes, but not TDP or heat dissipation but the power draw of the whole system from the 220V wall outlet.

Your profile is showing a Ryzen system.

And it is a ryzen system, the profile is accurate to the letter. Why?

I'm confused. You're saying you clocked an FX-8300, a Socket FM3+ CPU, but you're saying the system specs match what's in your profile, which is a Socket AM4 system.

 

Unless you're saying everything but the CPU, motherboard, and RAM are the same.

It might be your language barrier reading English. Try reading it again.

 

With the FX nearly everything was the same. True, the motherboard probably used 5W less than this one, but the ddr3 RAM used a tiny bit more than this DDR4.

The total power draw of the board&ram did not change significantly when upgrading, the CPU upgrade makes the most difference.

Ok, so what you want us to do, is to take out our FX systems, and compare wattages?

Nope, not FX, any system will do. This could help people stop recommending 1000W PSU-s for system that don't draw even 500W etc.

Its been concluded several times b4 that builds only take 400-550W, look at reviews.
