150W...

But who knows.. you didn't list the card you are using so at least we could get an idea of the power it 'should' be using. But yeah, those are all three domains, you would add them up AFAIK.

Fill out your systems specs, would ya?

Hard to say exactly, anything would be a rough estimate. The best way(s) to know for sure are either a $20 watt meter from Amazon, Wal-Mart, home improvement stores, etc. The meter comes in handy for finding the exact power usage of any appliance, not just the PC.

Alternatively and a bit more money, but many mid-range and up UPS backups will also show exact power usage. I'm happy with my CyberPower one and it also helps with avoid problems with brief power drops that are common at least in my area. Nothing worse than being in the middle of something and a split-second power drop would just be enough to cause a PC reset. Now I never have to worry about those, and I get a graceful shutdown on longer power outages.

Absolutely no idea

Isn't the idle about 15w ?, so 15w-150w.

He means while mining with the current settings. I would use HWiNFO GPU VRM Power In readings(at least for comparison). Short of buying a clamp on power meter capable of displaying watts.
So in thise app (HWiNFO) it says

GPU Core Power 46w
GPU Chip Power 64w

GPU Core Current 54A
GPU Aux Current 208A

I was hoping you'd get something a little less convoluted and easy to understand. But apparently they're trying to make it hard to figure out these days with software.

For my 280X using HWiNFO64 I get a simple GPU VRM Power In reading. Simple. Basic. Not hard to understand. No add this to that if you can figure out what to add to what stupid BS. I'm not even going to try and tell you what any of that crap means. No documentation = No definitions = Your guess is as good as mine. FU AMD!!!

My card running Kombustor. 237.250 W Max.

You could pic up a Kill A Watt up for about $20 and see what it is at the wall.

Regardless of GPU power consumption, I recommend a 1200 W PSU for 4 GPU's. In other words, if you had money for 4 GPU's, than you certainly must have for a good 1200 W PSU.
Peak gaming power consumption for that GPU is 180 W (TPU review), plus CPU max. power consumption (eg. 120W), plus other components (eg. 20 W) equals in about 860W. You should also have a safety margin of at least 150 W above the maximum possible system power consumption for such system, so you need at the very least a good 80 Plus Gold 1000 W PSU.

Hes mining, and modified the bios for lower power use... not gaming on a stock bios. ;)

Since hes mining, blindly overbuying a psu only extends the ROI.

Yeah just wait until that CX750 goes up in flames, then buy one with a bit of headroom instead of pushing it all the time ;)

4x GPU and a CPU will make it happen sooner or later, even while mining I reckon. There is some overhead as well you're not seeing, besides CPU and the GPUs. Its not much, but can be enough to tip it over the edge. I'd probably push it up to 850w to be on the safe side. Price differences are not stellar if you look around abit either.

1.2kw is overkill...so may 1kw...

He should get that killawatt instead of guessing...with a modded bios and mining, its tough to tell..
