Solved I7-930 overclocked power consumption Tags: CPUs Power Consumption Intel i7 Power Overclocking Last response: September 17, 2010 3:23 PM in Overclocking Share tom thumb August 28, 2010 2:20:27 PM the i7 line has a peak load of 130W when at stock speeds. How much power does a 930 consume at various clocks... Let's say 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6 etc... Does it scale linearly? I ask this because I plan to do a very mild overclock, but I can only use the 4-pin power which has a capacity of 150 Watts. Also, does the power cable have a safety margin? More about : 930 overclocked power consumption vexun11 September 6, 2010 9:13:04 PM I have noticed that when I have turbo mode turned off the peak load is 130 but when I have it turned on it is around 148. What's up with that? m 0 l EXT64 a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking September 7, 2010 1:19:39 AM Power consumption goes up linearish if you keep default voltage, however for high OCes or voltage increases it goes up much faster than linear. m 0 l Related resources Power Consumption of an Overclocked R9 290 Vapor-X? - Forum Estimated power consumption for overclocked Sapphire (TOXIC) 280X? - Forum 290x/780ti overclocked power consumption? - Forum 4670k & 4770k overclocked power consumption? - Forum Psu question overclocking - power consumption. - Forum Can't find your answer ?

It will give full system power, but from that you can find increases. m 0 l tom thumb September 14, 2010 12:34:13 AM So.... speed is proportional to current, and since power = current * voltage, if I increase voltage by 10% and speed by 10%, power draw will increase by 21% Right? m 0 l Best solution aznshinobi a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking September 14, 2010 1:50:28 AM http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article/2008/11/13/intel_... or http://icrontic.com/forum/showthread.php?t=79648 Should give you an idea of the power consumption. Intel stuck 130w, but once it OCs it sucks energy. So if you plan to fold, you better stick to lower than 3.6 clocks.
