now one of my friend had a clamp multimeter lying around and so i thought i would measure the power consumption of my pc. this also has sth to do with the new RA 1000VA Ups i bought recently. the ups not giving expected backup, i decided to see how much power does idle and load situations consume in reality instead of PSU calculators.
All measurements has been done with the single clamp multimeter i had and all readings are from the mains supply. so no need to factor in the efficiency of my psu at different loads... The readings represent the power being drawn from the mains supply at different scenarios.... The readings are as follows...
COMPUTER POWER CONSUMPTION
POWER COMSUMPTION [WATTS]
COMMENTS [details of the scenario]
Computer Idle 166-172 CPU usage=1-5%, GPU usage=0-1%, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. CPU LOAD/STRESS
226-230 Prime95 [small FTTs torture test], GPU usage=0-1%, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. [b] 224-228 Prime95 [Blend torture test], GPU usage=0-1%, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. [c] 244-248 OCCT [linpack][x64], GPU usage=0-1%, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. [d] 238-242 OCCT [linpack][x32], GPU usage=0-1%, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. [e] 222-228 OCCT [normal], GPU usage=0-1%, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. GPU LOAD/STRESS
412-420 OCCT, [email protected] & 2004MHZ, gpu fans=100%, gpu temp:95c, cpu usage=1-5%, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. [b] 434-440 OCCT, gpu [email protected] & 2100MHZ, gpu fans=100%, gpu temp:98c, cpu usage=1-5%, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. CPU & GPU LOAD/STRESS
354-364 3DMark 11 Demo, Xtreme Preset [just changed to 1680x1050 res], gpu temp: couldnt monitor, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. [b] 240-245 Sleeping Dogs [@Menu], All Settings MAXED, 1680x1050, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. [c] 372-386 Sleeping Dogs [Benchmark], All Settings MAXED[AA:Extreme] [Av.fps-24.7, Max.fps-41.7, Min.fps-14.0] [gpu usage-95-99%, gpu temp:84-86c], 1680x1050, Monitor ON state, Speakers turned ON. Monitor ON [ONLY]
15-17 my normal operating settings Brightness-35%, Contrast-75% [b] 34-36 my movie watching settings Brightness-100%, Contrast-85% Speakers ON [ONLY] 1-24 power consumption changes according to volume. Varying sound volume either through software or speaker control knob changes power consumption. Computer SLEEP 30-34 Monitor standby mode, Speakers ON. Casing Power button needs to be pressed to resume windows which takes 15-20 sec.
now my ups gives a backup of 30-35 mins max when computer is idle, watching a movie or sth gives somewhere around 15-18 mins. i will test backup time some more later on. these are the backup time numbers i remember from a few days back.
This thread is actually like a continuation of a previous thread here http://banglagamer.com/showthread.ph...tware-problems
@Vanguard i couldn't open the ups b4 as there was a sticker which would have been broken if i opened the case of the ups. but now, since they opened it, i can easily look around the innerds of the ups as i please. the batteries are luminous [the battery has no serial or any unique number whatsoever] and they have a peculiar mark [within the red circle of last pic] on the each side of the top part of each battery making me believe that the RA technicians may have 'opened' the top part of the battery to do sth. don't know for sure, well
here are some pics of the innerds of my new ups....
