Of course, couldn't tell if those numbers are "precise" or not... nor do I know how fah is good as testing power consuption...
Wow, very interesting. And on the other hand, you get situations like mine, where my OC'd i7 920 + single GTX280 managed to pull just over 800W according to my UPS. Of course, the fact that my motherboard burned out a week later and is now up for RMA may have something to do with it as well...
