    Power load on system...


    I am not certain, if this is the right forum, please move it if not...

    Question about the power utilization...

    The system is W10 v.1809:

    Desktop tower with 5 x 120mm Noctua fans
    CPU: Intel i5 8400
    Memory:16GBs (4x4)
    Drives: 2 x Samsung 960 EVO m.2, Samsung SSD 850 EVO, DVD RW
    Video: GeForce GTX 1050
    Monitor: Samsung 40" LED TV (resolution: 3840 x 2160)

    The system, monitor and an LED desk-lamp with USB charger are connected to CyberPower UPS. The average power usage is low:

    The monthly statistics for power usage, including the cost and CO2, is also rather low:

    The system pretty much only used for office purposes, unless the grandkids want to watch some online cartoons...

    The previous system, with older CPU (Sandy Bridge), couple HDDs and different video card, etc., also used the same UPS. The power usage statistics for the older system were pretty much double, when compared to the current system.

    Are the stats for the new system correct, or the CyberPower app isn't working well with Windows 10?

    TIA...

    :)

    help to choose power supply

    It all depends on the rest of your systems. List system specs, although eidairaman's suggestion will work too.

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    Power plan?

    Upon checking, it seems that there's nothing wrong with your system. It is usual that you have to double-click your mouse before your monitor wakes up.

    For the meantime, we suggest changing the power plan by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + S.
    • Type in Power Settings.
    • On the pop-up window, choose Additional power settings.
    • Select High performance.

    After changing the power plan, we suggest that you monitor the changes made and check if that will work for you.

    Get back to us if you need further help.
