0Logo PSUEficiência PSU: vale o upgrade? parte 3

Esta é a terceira parcela de uma série de artigos de endereçamento PSU eficiência. Artigo uma focada em uma novo servidor teórica, art-igo 2 com um PC desktop típico.  Este artigo irá se concentrar em um servidor real atual, e introduz um novo PSU - a 80+ modelo de platina.


The sys­tem spends a lot of time semi-idling (serving net­work and disk requests but not doing too much CPU trabalhos).  I estim­ated that it would pull around 150W on aver­age, and then cal­cu­lated it below. It really did come out exactly like that!
Base sys­tem Sem­pron LE-1100 (1.9GHz single-core) no nForce 630i / 7050 mother­board. 2Gb DDR-II35W
2x Sam­sung F4 2Tb HDDs, 7x inc 1TB Verde HDDs. WD Verde 1TB, Seag­ate 1Tb and Sam­sung 1Tb, 1x unidade 7200 WD 750 GB, 1x Max­tor 300Gb 7200rpm drive, 1x WD 200 Gb 7200 IDE108W
Areca 1220 RAID Cartão5W
2x 120 milímetros caso fã2W
TOTAL150W

Fora de interesse, assum­ing a cost of £0.10 per kWh this sys­tem would cost a total of £131.50 a year to run even with a per­fectly effi­cient PSU!

o ATX spe­cific­a­tion requires 70% effi­ciency. Below is a com­par­is­on between a bare min­im­um ATX PSU and a few highly effi­cient PSU'S.

The fig­ure for the gen­er­ic PSU is based on the min­im­um require­ment and is there­fore a worst case. I have cal­cu­lated a best-case yearly sav­ing, based on a kWh charge of 10p and assum­ing 24.7 uso.

Con­clu­sion: This is the first scen­ario where new high­er-effi­ciency PSUs are reas­on­ably price com­pet­it­ive based only on power usage. For such a sys­tem, a high effi­ciency PSU will pay for itself with­in approx­im­ately 3 years. If you plan to keep the sys­tem for more than 3 years a high effi­ciency PSU is a worth­while invest­ment as its TCO will be lower. As energy prices con­tin­ue to rise this TCO advant­age will widen.

Added the HuntKey Jump­er R90. This PSU changes the con­clu­sion con­clus­ively. It pro­duces sav­ings of over £40, que é pelo menos o preço do PSUA pay­back peri­od of 1 ano, with an expect­a­tion that elec­tri­city prices will con­tin­ue to rise is well worth the invest­ment.
