Lenovo IdeaCentre Erazer X700 Gaming PC Review

Power Consumption and Noise

To test the Lenovo Erazer X700's power consumption, we used a power meter at the outlet to measure the system at idle. Then, we ran Prime95 and FurMark to stress the system's primary components and recorded the wattage again.

At idle, the Erazer X700 drew 72W from the wall, and under load, it peaked at 289W. What that tells us is there's plenty of headroom left on the 625W PSU should you want to upgrade the GPU down the line, which is going to have the biggest impact on power draw.

As we mentioned earlier, the Erazer X700 is a rather polite gaming system that doesn't get loud, even under load. With a good set of headphones, you could game into the wee hours of the morning without waking up the wife (or husband) and kids.
