Power consumption is a hot topic of conversation in recent months as people are paying more attention to their electricity bills and overall energy footprint.
We used a calibrated meter to measure the power at the wall.
Firstly we analysed the power drain when all systems were at reference clock speeds (Core i7 3960X EE @ 3.3ghz, Core i5 2500k @ 3.3ghz, Core i7 2600k @ 3.4ghz, Core i7 2700k @ 3.5ghz and FX 8150 @ 3.6ghz).
Next we overclocked the processors, increasing voltage settings.
An efficient result especially when considering the class leading performance results.
