    At first I thought it was a 11k Watt PSU and thought, that's a lot of heckin' power :D

    If this was a 11'600, relatively speaking it can power up 9 full set pentium farm rigs no prob (6gpu ea.) :eek:

    Following EU legislation your PC and thus PSU and motherboard combo needs to remain under 0.5 Watts in sleep or powered down mode. We measure 0.1 Watts.

    LOVE MY EU!
    :)

    To achieve this, you will need to enable EuP mode in your motherboard BIOS. We cannot measure below 0.1 Watts.

    So that's what EuP/ErP in my BIOS do!!


    for those that have and leave RGB bling activated on their motherboard day and night even with the PC powered down, you are using roughly 5 Watts continuously 24/7/365

    !!!!

    Thanks for bringing up this topic. I'll look into this on my asus board and try to deactivate it, it annoys me from time to time, but was too lazy to do anything until now :)

    That also disable charging of usb connected devices, wake up functions as well as remote power on/reboot devices powered by USB, no thanks.
    Also workaround would be to use 3-4 usb chargers which in end consume way more than PC with Eup disabled.

    something is off with your tests, platinum rated PSUs rated worse than bronze rated ones...I don't expect you to be Johnny Guru but this...Enermax Platimax is platinum rated PSU, and I'll have you know, that side by side with CM platinum rated and EVGA gold rated rated PSUs, all 1200W, both platinum rated PSUs draw less power than gold rated one. They don't just "stamp" badges onto those. Especially not onto something like Enermax which is one of the alpha and omega of PSUs amidst the imposters like CM, evga, seasonic and such that just put badge onto someones electronics.

    Measurements say otherwise. Apparently they do:

    Once

    Twice

    According to jonnyGURU.
    Jonny, not Johnny.

    Just because the results are not as expected, doesn't mean they're not right.

    what you are saying, according to results Noisiv posted (which are as expected), Be Quiet has over 92% efficiency (game load) if we assume the bad scenario for platimax where it has only 89% eff. due to low load. Ok. Thank you Sir for your reply.

    Do you pronounce these two differently? See, since English is not my first language, writing things like those of the top of my head tend to sometimes get written like they sound rather than how they are supposed to be written. Sorry, and thanks for the correction.
