Power Consumption

 

We are now able to find out what kind of power is being used by our test system and the associated graphics cards installed. Keep in mind; it tests the complete system (minus LCD monitor, which is plugged directly into an AC wall socket).

The LANParty JR. GF9400 is very efficient on power. Even when overclocked it still manages to keep a low power footprint.

 

Heat Generation

 

As a new measure, we are now monitoring the heat generation from the key components on the motherboards, this being the Northbridge, Southbridge (if it contains one) as well as the Mosfets around the CPU. The results are recorded at idle and load during the power consumption tests.

The heat put out by the LP GF9400 is not bad at all. It is able to stay cool enough that you should have no problem putting this into a SFF case without worrying about overheating. This makes it even more a good choice for a SFF gaming rig (as long as you drop in a better GPU).
