AMD A10-6800K Richland Overclocked Review

Power Consumption at the Wall

We use a mains power meter to measure what's being taken from the wall by our system. It's clear to see that overclocking the system has resulted in more power being used in all scenarios, from idle to heavy CPU stress tests.



Even with the two-tower 'D14 cooler running at a constant 12v we're still seeing over 80ºC when using OCCT's stress test, though the temperatures drops to below 60ºC when playing back HD movies. It was clear from the get go that the stock cooler would not have been able to withstand the extra volts needed for the overclocks.
