BTW I notice the asrock bios screen hw monitor is very good at stressing the cpu, when I just sits there from kill-a-watt it consumes as much power as prime for me....heh.


Nothing is quiet on full.....

That is excellent price for Intel i3-2125 with HD3000.....you'll smile after you done. Disable DXVA2 and everything esle in XBMC settings/video/playback and disable "Use a fullscreen window rather than a true fullscreen", it'll do 1080P and bitstreaming with ease.......

>Alienware X51- do it all HTPC
>Simplify XBMC configurations
>HOW-TO Bitstreaming using XBMC
I refused to watch movie without bitstreaming HD audio!

It's perfectly silent and is cool, I'll probably keep it there for now and save the big shuriken for an A8 upgrade down the road Smile I'll set the fans to auto 50C and level 1 same as in your post, it's spinning at 520 rpm.

B) win7 idle is about 22W
C) XBMC screen + playback is ~32W

I can't believe I miss this....

So I read that the power brick is at 32W when playing a 1080p video.... interesting ..... I am going to test out my 65w brick..... I am going to leave it on playing some 1080p vids .... if I don't get any trouble then I will take down the 90w brick.....

Is all about testing..... great that there is no need to buy a separate power brick..

So far so good!!!!!

i always testified that the 65w Power Brick of the ISK300-65
was capable of handling XBMC 1080P just fine.

its if your a Prime95 + FurMark addict
and you run them both at same time everyday then,
65w brick wont cut it.

but anyhow, just keep your 90W for your second HTPC Beer40.
then one that you'll use for more then just playing 1080P using XBMC.

Prime 95 and Furmark I tried... but not together I really don't want to.... LOL but I might!

But yes I am keeping my 90w for my other setup as its going to fix PAR's and that uses 100% cpu power....so I know it's going to spike to 80w..... but keeping 65w brick on my HTPC.... updated my post too...
