    Actual Load Readings

    With a few people getting their hands on power measuring meters like these I think its a good idea if we have a list of systems and what the pull at load and idle.

    Remember that what a PSU pulls from the socket is not exactly what your system will be using as they are not 100% efficient.
    Efficiency changes from unit to unit and with how much its loaded with.

    Lets try and keep this thread as clean as we can with actual technical discussion and readings from meters. Start a new thread if you have something that don't fall into those two

    Re: Actual Load Readings

    I thought I'd give this a bump to see if anyone else has a meter and would be willing to share their results?

    I have one now so will add some soon too

    I use a 78% efficient PSU, so my components would use 245W at load, with a (imaginary) 100% efficient power source.

    315W + 25W LCD monitor works out to 4p per hour when gaming!
