PC drawing 200W in IDLE

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Something isn't right, my PC (with all the peripherals) draws 200W from the power outlet during IDLE.

It's the PC from my profile (Ryzen 1600X, 16GB ddr4, R9 380X, 5 HDD 2SSD, G3 550W, 2 displays).

It's not the Power Profile, it's not something with the UEFI settings and it's not even overclocked.

When I turn the monitors and the speakers OFF it drops to ~160W. What could it be?

I will try booting some Linux and see if the powerdraw changes. That's actually a good recommendation, thanks.

Yes, That seems about right. I remember that Win 10 still collects telemetry data,

 

his means max disk usage and a less responsive machine.

 

There is a solution, but posting that would ban me here at LTT

No, it would be windows update or windows file explorer doing stuff.

 

Or if you have Onedrive that would also be doing stuff.

 

200watts is still quitw. Bit however.
