Excellent post and if he was running 100% on both CPU and GPU, (like F@H for example) things may get closer to 800W at the wall. That said: The first link and result is quite odd to me. Again, power limit on the card is 20% so how can it go THAT much over? Why does that result fit between DUAL GPU cards? Doesnt make sense at all. And I would guess its a typo... should be 248W? I'll run Furmark on the card tonight and see what I get... The second link is Furmark... Wiz even states its an unrealistic load. When F@H on the GPU only I cant come close to that number and gaming is WAY less than that. In the last link, they are using an 85% efficient PSU and their results are taken from the wall and includes the entire system. So at minimum, take 45W off that value there which puts you at ~200W for the system on a load you wont reach (Prime95). Im hitting 235W at the wall F@H with a 3770K @ 4.5GHz (same system as above with both 7970's idling, water pump pumping, 6 fans (2 deltas), and 5 HDD's (2 SSD's). My apologies to all if I missed he was folding or something.
