Energy, Thermals, and Noise
Underneath a full CPU load (Blender, 5 consecutive runs of the Classroom render take a look at), the best quantity I noticed was 461 watts on the wall. 435 watts was a typical draw below CPU load, with lighter workloads below 400 watts, complete. When the graphics card was doing many of the work, the ability draw topped out at 501 watts on the wall.
As to thermals, I targeted on the processor right here, as this was cooled utilizing a Lenovo answer, and the NVIDIA graphics card used its personal inventory cooling. The Threadripper PRO 5995WX is a really power-hungry half, and when all cores had been burdened for some time (the identical 5 consecutive Blender Classroom exams from the ability draw testing) common core temperatures hit 75.3 C (~17 C ambient).
As to noise, below full CPU load the system stayed under 40 dBA, with the best noticed noise stage at 39.3 dBA with the meter positioned simply 12 inches from the entrance panel. I used to be a bit frightened once I noticed that the CPU followers had been solely 80 mm (and the case followers aren’t a lot greater), however the system is nicely balanced and the followers don’t spin quicker than crucial.
