Power Consumption

Power Consumption

To measure power consumption we use a killawatt meter and measure the total system power draw at the wall. We run two different use-case scenarios for 5 minutes and take the average reading. The first scenario is a desktop idle state with the minimum number of programs running as possible, the second is AIDA 64’s System Stability Test with CPU, FPU, cache system memory and GPU options selected: this simulates a heavy & intensive full system load.


Power consumption at load seemed a little high given the mid-range nature of this X99 motherboard but then at idle it seemed slightly lower than I’d expect so I’m not sure what to make of that. 48 watts at idle is pretty impressive for an X99 system though!
