Default CPU Overclocking vs. Power Consumption

Without going too much into details about the design of this unit we would like to say that the advantage of this device over electrical meters, amperemeters, current clamp meters, shunts and voltmeters is that it not only provides more precise readings, but also allows to interactively monitor the current changes along different power lines. As a result, we will offer you not only the average results, but also the maximum power consumption readings. We will also check not only the current sent to the mainboard through a special 12 V processor power connector, but also the currents the mainboard receives via standard 24-pin ATX power connector along 12, 5 and 3 V power lines. We must take all this data into account because many contemporary processors, mostly the ones made by Intel, use combination power circuitry that involves not only the individual 12 V processor power line.
