    Question Strix 3090 OC idle power draw

    So I guess I am among the luckie ones, as I own this card since last week and I love it.

    It just came to my attention that power draw in idle seems to be 30 watts higher to what a review says according to hwinfo64.

    So I mean single and dual monitor setup in my case is 30 watts above what they say.

    It's not a big issue, but I am just wondering where this comes from as my 2080ti idled at 10-15 watts, without LEDs and fans though.

    Hello,

    Are the reviewers testing idle power at the same refresh and resolution as you? If they are not, that likely answers your question

    I actually did try to lower my Refresh Rate with no difference.

    Besides that I have been running the same monitor config with my previous 2080ti and it idled at about 10 watts with UWQHD and WQHD monitors at 120 and 144 hertz so it was no problem before.
