power consumption?

Have built computer, with all the latest bits and bobs. It has more fans than a superstar, is fabulously fast compared to my old Mr Dell, and so reliable I am beginning to regrow the hair where I used to pull it out.

I have a query - does anyone know of a way to test it for power consumption?

Am curious, especially as our latest lecci bill has given my missus an epileptic.

She is threatening to limit the usage of my beloved electronic abbacus, and am in need of a couple of cwt of bulldust to convince her that it is not my fault.

Doubt even the biggest machine found at home would consume enough "lecci" to make a significant difference to your bill.

There was a thread yesterday about this very thing. Have a look through yesterday's posts.
