Well, Kill-A-Watt tells me I am pulling around 365W (after 10m, when the HDDs drop into power saving mode) at the wall with my FX-8320 @ 4.0Ghz (1.308V) folding with 6 threads and the Vega card running at 1,800Mhz @ 1.150V. Plan on adding a 7th thread soon to the CPU side. The only reason I kept the CPU at 6 was because Nvidia GPUs require more CPU usage than AMD/ATI GPUs. Like right now, the GPU slot is pulling 2-3% CPU usage. So, will probably add a single thread later this week.

Temps are actually really good.

VRM temps after I started cooling the back of the mainboard with a small low RPM fan dropped from 85-90C to 55-60C. Case manufacturers have a MAJOR opportunity there when it comes to directing some air behind the mainboard to help cool the VRMs.
