Hey guys. My i7 950 is using 144.48 watts whether under load or not, it just stays the same. It is running at 3.2 GHz. Is this something i should be alarmed about? i know the processor is rated at 130 watts, and this seems pretty dang high. What you guys think? its on a gigabyte ga-x58a-ud3r with a coolermaster v6. temps are fine

Where are you getting the 144.48W figure from?

hardware monitor. my power strip keeps shutting off. and im pretty sure its cuz my psu is drawing too many watts for this thing or something. the psu is really good. its a 750 watt corsair. so that isnt the problem. but i have read that others dont even get 80 watts with their setups overclocked to 3.6 GHz.

Hardware monitor? Like a Kill-a-Watt or some software monitoring program? Software monitoring programs are a shot in the dark regarding watts and voltages.

I have an I920/ATI4870 rig and it pulls anywhere from 160 to 310 watts(at the wall) depending on load.

Ya that is ur entire rig. I am talking about just my processor. And hardware monitor is pretty accurate now. it used to not be as good but it is really solid now. And i fixed my problem btw. My vcore was really high in my bios for some reason (like 1.29 which is wayyyyyyyy to high for stock speeds) so i lowered it to 1.2 and the voltages are okay now. Thanks
