ok which tool do I need to find out how much electricity my Folder is pulling from the wall and where can I find it?
Desktop computer power supplies (PSUs) are in general 70–75% efficient,
dissipating the remaining energy as heat
. An industry initiative called 80 PLUS certifies PSUs that are at least 80% efficient; typically these models are drop-in replacements for older, less efficient PSUs of the same form factor. As of July 20, 2007, all new Energy Star 4.0-certified desktop PSUs must be at least 80% efficient.
I did not know this that it actually just wastes less energy the PC still uses the same amount just watt is left over turns into heat.
Hmm so basically a cooler PSU would be more efficient meaning a better fan,exhaust and heats sinks would be better. ok now I am confused
