searching lowest power consumption motherboard for Crossfire AMD cards.
My plain is use AMD Crossfire with HD 7750 cards for gpu computing, so lines x4 nvm.
My current system:
Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4+ i2500k@default, CM Hyper 212+, Gigabyte HD7750 2GB DDR3, 2x4GB Corsair DDR3 1333, Samsung 1TB-F3, Thermaltake Armor Jr.,2x120 Revoltec,Zalman Fan mate2, FSP Aurum 400w GOLD, Idle 48 w, load cpu-Orthos-85w, lynx-128w, Load Gpu-3dmark vantage -max 100w
48w idle with 3.5 hdd and 7750 card not bad, but i wanna better. Without Hd7750 is consumption 38w - still not so good i expected.
Know this mobo with 16 VRM phases is not efficient motherboard.
Thats why i looking for low power consumption with support crossfire.
Chipset H61, H67, H77, B75, atc
Found for example this mbhttp://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8H67M#specifications
Supports AMD Quad-GPU CrossFireX™ Technology
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (blue)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black) -
How much i can save watts?
My questions :
Is there any low power motherboard with chipset H61, B75 for crossfire gpus and cpu v core adjustment for low power?
My plan is use G530 or i3 2100 with it.
