    I am moving from a full tower rig to a miniTX rig, maybe mATX, but pushing miniITX and wanted to know what kind of power are people's rigs currently pulling?

    If you can list your specs, links to pics and how much power draw you are doing, would be good to know!

    My main ITX system uses the most power over the other ITX systems in the house:

    Case: SilverStone SG05
    Fan: Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-13 1150 RPM 120mm, used as front exhaust
    PSU: Seasonic X-460 Fanless
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77E-ITX
    CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2
    CPU cooler: Antec Kuhler H2O 620
    RAM: Samsung 8GB 30nm 1.35V DDR3 1600
    GPU: PowerColor Go! Green AX7750
    SSD: Samsung 830 Series 256GB

    I measured AC power consumption with a Kill A Watt.

    Power Consumption:

    IDLE: 39W
    Prime95: 98W
    Prime95 + Furmark: 138W

    Prime95 was set to Torture Test In-place large FFTs.

    139 Watts

    Shuttle SH67H3 with a 35W Pentium G630T
    rest of rig in sig

    I suppose it would be higher if you count the 3 eSATA drives that aren't being powered by it, which would bring the total to 241 Watts

    My UPS shows 60 watts while recording ATSC (DTV). Including my projector, it is at 258 watts while recording. Running the processor up, HTPC+Projector draws 294 watts.

    Celeron E3300 @ 2,66GHz, 2GB RAM, Radeon HD 5570, Hauppauge HVR 1250, 1x 5400RPM Hard Drive.

    Close to 300W under torture testing. Normally well under 100W. (i5-2500K+H67ITX+560ti+SSD+Green HD)

    My mini draws about 30W under load, however. :)

    My current media server is pulling 44w at maxload (handbrake encoding across all cores) according to the kill-a-watt (yeah, I've heard it has issues with accuracy, but it's what I've got).

    Case: Stripped down FT03 (seriously, just the frame)
    PSU: Seasonic 400w fanless
    Mobo: Intel S1200KP
    CPU: Intel 2120T
    HS/F: Stock
    RAM: g.skill 2x8g DDR3/1333
    OS Drive: Intel X25M-80g (G2)
    Data Drive: Seagate 500g 7200.4 2.5"
    Fan: Old S-Flex "D"

    Encoding reads & writes on seagate drive.
