    Run windows in power saving or energy saving mode

    It'll keep the display dimmer
    Put the computer to sleep faster
    Shut off the monitor faster
    The processor will be able to down clock itself as long as you don't have a manual voltage on an over clock, if it does have manual voltage the CPU my down clock but the power consumption will stay the same


    Other then that any 3rd party type software I personally wouldn't really trust as it would have to be able to control your processes, meaning it can turn whatever it feels like off and your nine the wiser about what just got switched off



    Computers actually don't typically use that much power, refrigerator and a/c probly use more power then your PC on a day to day, just because it has 1000w PSU doesn't mean it pulls that all day

    Thank you Tokens210.
    I think can use Power Options saving. In fact,they'll fall slightly.

    You're going to have to re-edit your signature as you can't use a 2500K in a Maximus VII Hero lol.

    As for power saving, this may come as a surprise to you, but your PC consumes the most power when you turn it on for the 1st time. If you really want power savings in regards to your PC, don't use it so much. 18 hours a day is far too much time to be sitting in front of a PC.

    Computers assist for my work well. I often play games when I have free time, my computer is always at command.
    To me, it is a big problem.
