I'm trying to get things straight regarding PSU wattage calculations...
- Outervision recommended a 1000-watt psu;
- My own experience and common sense told me a 650-watt psu was sufficient;
- Real-world maximum wattage measured precisely at wall with a Rio-Rand wattage meter: 395.1 watts*
*My 6700k is running @ 4.7 ghz, 1.396v and my 1080 strix is at 2,100mhz (yes, overclocked to precisely 2,100mhz)
Why are PSU measurements so far off from reality? Am I missing something?
Here's my current build, up-and-running:
