    Power consumption

    Hi, dont know if this the right place to post this, how would i go about finding out power consumption of intel chips and motherboards, so i can work out power consumption? Ive trawled the intel website and gigabyte website looking for wattage values and found nothing!

    Please help, i need to find out what p4 chip to use to make sure an opus will be enough!

    Thanx James

    People have been running 2.4 and higher Northwood P4's on a 150W Opus. The Opus, if anything, is under-rated, and can give much more power than it says it can, unlike desktop power supplies that often give out WAY less than what they say they do
