i plan to buy myself a new power supply. Since i have a Haswell (i5-4570) CPU, I was wondering if the low power states would work on my hackintosh. Otherwise, this investment would be rather senseless I guess.
Currently, I use the Intel Power Gadget in order to analyze the power consumption of my CPU. In Idle, it consummate around 44 W. In full load, it consummate around 59 W. if C6 and C7 are working, it should by much more less than 44W.
Anyway, it would be nice if someone could confirm that C6 and C7 is working.
If anyone has any experience, it would be also nice to know how high the power consumption of these states are using a hackintosh.
Thank you guys,
