The cards are not the only thing in the computer that pulls the power. The extra 180W is being pulled by the CPU, RAM, HDD and the other components of the computer.

Well your power consumption is mostly from the quad GPUs and also in Linux the power consumption is silghtly greater than other OS. So taking everything into matter 755 W power consumption is kind of normal and nothing to worry about.

The processor you mentioned alone consumes 51W of that 191W (755-564W). It's perfectly fine what your rig is pulling. However, as people pointed out you can still decrease this consumption a bit.

Not only the cards, there are other components of a computer that consumes power. In that sense your device is perfectly normal.

Do you have any calculator showing this profitalibity? Whattomine does not have SUQA. What hashrate do you have?

I had a some spare time today, so I decided to temporarily slap together a test rig similar to the OP's setup.

I couldn't get it exact but very close and I WAS able to fairly duplicate the power draw from the GPU's to show that ZhashOS is using LESS power as I stated before.

I had to gather a few GPU's from other rigs to do this for the moment. This test rig is using a celeron G3930 CPU. Same as the OP's. I couldn't gather 4 1070ti's, but I was able to gather 2 1070ti's and 2 1070's. BUT I set all the GPU's to draw 148 watts in the ZhashOS SetupWiz application.

So my GPU's were drawing MORE than the 564 Watts the OP was drawing. I did this to make sure I wasn't using less from the GPU's.

I also took 16MP pictures so you will be able to zoom in via "Ctrl +" in your browser to see the details if you like.

OK, so 1st pic is showing ZhashOS booted into the GUI desktop and idling. It is drawing a mere 52 watts. Power actually bounced between 52-54 watts while I was taking some pictures.

2nd pic is showing nvidia-smi showing the 4 gpus idling but consuming 32 of the 52 watts ZhashOS is using. So theoretically bare naked ZhashOS booted would draw ~20 watts.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/2NvidiaSmi.jpg

3rd pic is a closeup of the nvidia-smi screen showing a clearer view. As a side note, I just realized I left a dummy plug in GPU3, which ZhashOS thought I wanted to be in dual monitor mode and assigned some extra memory and power usage to it. I probably would have been 2-4 watts lower than the 52 watts at idle without it. Oh well, that's what happens when you rush.

4th pic is a closeup of the power meter for clarity.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/4MeterCloseup.jpg

5th pic is a closeup of the SetupWiz screen. Here you will see I set the GPU's 0-3 to draw 148 watts and set a mild overclock. This was a temporary test setup. I didn't want to spend a lot of time on tuning it in.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/5ZhashOSWizSettings.jpg

6th pic Shows it in action mining using EWBF. There is a window below the miner showing GPU measurements updating once every 10 seconds. Activating this is a checkbox setting in SetupWiz.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/6mining.jpg

7th pic shows a closeup on the mining in action for a clearer view.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/7miningCloseup.jpg

8th pic shows a closeup of the meter for clarity.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/8miningMeterCloseup.jpg

So this clearly shows ZhashOS is not just like any other OS. We heavily focused on power efficiency when we assembled this mining OS. So that ended up saving over 80 watts over the OP's setup even while we set the GPU's to consume slightly more power.

FYI, 83 watts x 24 hours x 30 days = 59,760 watt hours (~60 kwh)

60 kwh x $0.145 kwh = $8.70 savings per month. Of coarse it will be even more if you pay more for power.

We estimate our dev fee would be LESS than $1.00 for this rig for the full mining month. This IS a "Money Good" proposition and a excellent "value" in this bear market we are currently in.
