power consumption 8086k 2080ti

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just got a UPS, and it has a display to see power consumption and other things. I've always thought my pc was pulling a ton of power from the wall according to power supply calculators online, well under load I was surprised it doesn't even hit 500W, with 2x hdd's, 3x ssd's, 4x 120mm fans, the highest I've seen it hit is like 450ish watts, but that also includes my monitor, 2.1 speakers, and a 5 port gigabit network switch (and an alarm clock but that probably pulls like 1W).
just very surprised it pulls half of what any psu calc online says it pulls under load. idling it pulls around 130W.

PSU calculators are useless and overestimate by a ton. They are made to sell high wattage PSUs, not to help consumers. That's how they make money.

When measuring the power draw from the wall, you have to also take into account the efficiency loss of the PSU. That's roughly 10% for somewhat decent PSUs.

 

Power draw estimates that are more accurate than PSU calculators include: GPU TDP + 70W, dividing the PSU calculator's estimate by two, and random.org.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

yeah, that's what im saying, its crazy, according to the display, not only my pc, but my entire setup only pulls like 450W under load.... from the wall....

Yes that's normal. My own rig, an 8086k and titan, pulls 400 in a full synthetic stress test using aida64. 

 

Most people expect to have to use an 850 watt PSU for a high end rig when they only need half that 


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:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

With my FTW3 Ultra 2080 ti the highest draw that I recorded was 387 watts. I get these peaks usually when it goes over its 124% power target.

 

Different types of 2080 tis have different power draws.

Here are my two.

Here is the 387 watt reading.

The reading is under Target.

As for i7 8086ks my two at 5.1ghz consume about the same power than my i7 8700k did with 4.7 on all cores so it depends on the efficiency of the silicon.

I don't need to delid and they run cool on air so I am happy.
