I have run a 3950X right next to a 10980XE in the same room running benchmarks with my work laptop and some networking equipment, old ass plasma TV, etc. at the same time without issue. That Core i9-10980XE system pulled over 600w just doing CPU benchmarks.Hell yeah! I've got the same going here at my house, though I suspect my panel is not as robust as I think it should be in terms of the OCP. Some rooms I'm surprised it won't shut off given 3-4 full tilt systems with GPUs on one socket plus the ancillary plugged in things, and others I can't believe it trips with so little. I am actually concerned that I might have a problem with my next workstation as my office and bedroom share a 20A for 2 high power systems and my primary networking equipment.
If I can network my house like I want to, I can easily have dedicated 240V lines run to the old pantry rack in my basement (unfinished ceiling right to the panel) and set everything up, there. This is a "long term" vision, though.
I don't think he knows either. He made a ton of claims about what his workload was going to be, but he alluded to a 10 year history of not having the discipline to do any of it. Hence why his information is so out of date.Fair. He also won’t tell us what he wants to accomplish.
It's because he thinks you total up the maximum wattage everything is rated for. He doesn't realize that the PSU's are redundant, not parallel and that when this stuff is idle it pulls only what it needs to. He doesn't understand the technology, which is why he has so many messed up ideas about how things work. It also shapes his obviously bad buying habits.I'm still trying to figure out where he's getting his power consumption claims. He's somehow "using" 1400W, when in reality, it can't use much more than 700W, because redundant PSUs don't team up, they back each other up. (I know many servers have a team up option, but I don't know if this one does and if so if he learned to use it). The 2609v2 is a med-slow (GHz-wise) quad core, maybe 50-60W each without AVX. Add in another 100W for the board, raid card and drives and it's barely over 200W, 250-300 total depending on the fans. A pittance. There really isn't much to lower the consumption, and it's certainly not taking up an entire breaker all its own!
