Did you read my post at all?

In reference to the graph of power usage at load of a single 9800gx2 it says the entire SYSTEM draws 401W. 12Vx30A = 360 watts

So unless your cpu only draw 41 amps I'M pretty sure it doesnt.

They use a stock x6800 in that review....which draws a max of 75 watts at full load.

So if the entire system draws 492...assuming the PSU is 85% efficient at this amount of load...

GFX = 492 - CPU - psu efficiency loss - mobo - other shizzle such as drives/fans

GFX = 492 - 75 - 74 - 40 - 40

GFX = 258watts

That's a very rough approximation but it sounds about right about in the ballpark, it's most likely 20 or so watts lower than that.

I based what I said about the power being about 512w on this video.. I also said he may need to check up on it...



- Time: 4:10 - Power

Logan actually said that ONE 9800GX2 card takes 580W of power... I was off, lol



Love this video

Such a tool...

Also at 4:10 he doesn't mention power at all. Heck he doesn't mention power at all in the video...
