Hi,

I am posting today because I have the following problem:

I am trying to measure my gpu draw using HWinfo Sensors.
Using a meter at the wall my PC uses 250w.
It has a 1600x, a 580 nitro +, ssd, hdd, 4 fans.

How much of this power draw is my GPU?

What numbers in HWiNFO added up give me my reading of power draw?

I am attaching a photo of my sensors.

that is the link to the photo.

for my GPU draw do I add up GPU Chiper power + GPU VRM Power Out????

Please help.

Thank you

"GPU Chip Power" should be the best estimation of the whole GPU power.
This consists of GPU Core Power (which should be close to the VRM for the core rail) and additional rails which might not be truly monitored, but estimated.
