Re: REVIEW: CAPS pipeline on budget

I was thinking of doing a build similar to this. Do you have a Kill-a-watt meter? What is the power consumption of this build at idle? Thanks!

Re: Power consumption for the DH77KC

Thanks for the info audigy32. How do you disable C6 and SpeedStep? Is there a link you can post? I googled for it but I didn't find anything. Thanks.

Re: Power consumption for the DH77KC

I thought I would share post my power consumption numbers. I received the Cooler Master V550S PSU. Prior to this I had a Seasonic S12-500 PSU. My hardware is...

Re: GTX 750Ti sips power

What's interesting to me is how much more power efficient the refrence card is compared to the same cards manufactured by other vendors such as Asus, Palit, and MSI. The reference card idles at 4 watts, the other cards idle at anywhere from 6-10 watts. Under load they also draw more power. Is it pos...

Ah, that explains it. I was searching for the V450S only. Thanks for the link.

Thanks for the links everyone. During my research I found these... Kingwin LZP 550 45 PSU tested at low load I was leaning toward the Kingwin, but that Cooler Master tops the Kingwin in terms of efficiency. In fact, I don't think I've seen numbers that good. As you pointed out, that is at 230V. Do y...

Re: Power consumption for the DH77KC

@flemeister Just thought I'd post an update. I ordered a DH77KC. Also, I had a DH77DF on hand from my HTPC. I tested both these boards head to head using the following hardware...

Power consumption for the DH77KC

I have the opportunity to get the Intel DH77KC cheap so I was wondering if someone could post the power consumption for this board (along with relevant peripherals such as PSU, RAM, CPU, GPU cards that their build has). I know that Intel boards are very efficient but most of the power consumption st...

Re: Which picoPSU and power brick should I use[?]

I was expecting a difference too. I did notice that the power brick that came with the Antec case had an efficiency level of V, it is made by a company called Delta Electronics. The MeanWell also had a the same efficiency rating, so I'm guessing that these two power bricks are similar in performance...

Re: Which picoPSU and power brick should I use[?]

Okay, time for an update.... I got the MeanWell power supply (12V 80W 6.6A) and the picopsu-90-XLP. I removed the stock Antec power supply and installed these and the power consumption was EXACTLY the same. I noticed no significant difference between the stock Antec and the picopsu-90-XLP/MeanWell c...

Re: Which picoPSU and power brick should I use

I kinda hesitated and almost didn't find the picoPSU 90XLP, at first i tried calling MCS (ebay link) to see if he were willing to sell it without the brick, but told me that he just ran out today and no longer on stock. So i call mini-box and they said they are not re stocking the XLP out of being ...

I ordered the picoPSU-90-XLP from ebay and the 80 watt MeanWell adapter you linked to. I'll post the power results as soon as I get them.

Re: Which picoPSU and power brick should I use

Thanks for looking into that for me. I'll probably be looking to get a picopsu soon. I'm not sure if I'll go EDAC or MeanWell. Whichever way I go I'll be sure to post back my power consumption. Thanks again!

Re: Which picoPSU and power brick should I use

Thanks for the reply Abula. Yes, this is a hobby for me. As for the numbers on my board, I posted them on the first page of this thread , my post is somewhere at the bottom (I don't know how to link to it specifically). I get about 18.4 watts at idle, but this board allows me to undervolt the RAM an...
