    this article says this 6 core system needs about 300W
    but the setup build is 1000W....
    not sure i understand.... 1000W is a bit too much no?

    Those 300W are for the total system, not only for the CPU.
  5. Also that is not the total full out system load I dont think I am pretty sure that is just full load on CPU only and of course its running the rest of the system but its not loading the GPU. The test setup in that article had an HD5850. If that was full out GPU and CPU loaded then I would imagine it would have been a bit higher so you need to know what GPU you have exactly before you go out and get a new power supply.
  6. ^+1.

    A 1090T @ 3.8GHZ use ~140W
  7. My 1090T @ 4.0GHz takes 142W :]
