Temperatures, Cooling and Noise

The system is fully loaded using Furmark and Prime 95, similar to our laptop testing. The sound recordings are made in front of the machine, about 6 inches from the center of the tower. Temperatures are reported as recorded by CoreTemp and Furmark.

Our overclocked 8-core CPU reached a maximum temperature of 90 degrees Celsius, which is a bit on the high side considering we have watercooling on the CPU. We're sure the overclock contributed to this number.

The hottest GPU reached 92 degrees Celsius, which is the second highest GPU temperature recorded. It certainly didn't help that all three GPUs are stacked together without a slot in between, as is the norm with three GPUs.

And due to the stacked GPUs and incredible performance, we also get a pretty loud sound from the MILLENNIUM. We recorded a maximum sound level of 63 decibels, of which the GPUs contributed the most.

Power Consumption

Power consumption is measured while the system is loaded for the temperature test and while sitting idle at the desktop. Measurement is taken at the wall, so it includes everything running in the system, not including the monitor.

The overclocked CPU and high-performance SLI GPU setup combine to make a large power draw. We recorded a maximum power draw of 1,245W. As we have just a 1300W PSU, we will cause undue wear and tear and early aging on the PSU. This is why we recommend a 1400-1500W PSU.

At idle, we recorded a draw of 374W, which is more than a large portion of our systems at load. It goes without saying that performance this great will come with a large power draw, and a large associated power bill. But if you can afford this beast, you can likely afford the power draw associated with it.
