Took some Kill-A-Watt readings recently of a few machines, and I figured I would share them with you guys that are interested in your farm's power consumption.
System 1: i7-870 @ 3.7GHz/1.35v crunching 90%, 2x GTX 460 800/2000/0.975v +GTX 465 default/0.975v all Folding@Home, LEPA G900 80Plus Gold - 650w average
System 2: Phenom II X6 1045T @ 3.25GHz/1.35v, 2x GTX 460 800/2000 1.0v, Corsair TX750 80Plus original - 575w average
System 3: i7-2600K 4.2GHz/~1.3v, Gigabyte 7950 1175/1500/~1.2v crunching load only, Palit GTS 450 Folding@Home, Rosewill RG530 80Plus original - 360-420w depending on WU progress
System 4: Dell Dimension E520, stock Xeon X3210, integrated 965G, Dell 305w ~70% efficiency? - 130w average
With all my machines currently running (at work and home) after shutting down the old ones, I loosely estimate that I am consuming between 3000-4000 watts of electricity 24/7. Now that's a lot of energy.
