Does your rig use more electricity than a standard refridgerator?

Mainly referring to those who play their games on Ultra maintaining 60 frames.

Thanks for informing us how much a standard refrigerator uses for comparison.

Fail post because in general really old components use way more energy...

Would not have minded telling you, but I am not going to google this to find out.

According to my trusty Kill-A-Watt:

Refrigerator: ~315 W when compressor is running, ~40 W when idle

Gaming PC: ~230 W when crunching, ~110 when idle

For the record, the PC in question is i5-2500k/560ti/850W PSU.

So basically my PC is less hungry than the fridge when running, but eats more watts when sitting idle. Considering the fridge is idle way more often than it is running, and also considering that my PC is usually running more often than idling... I think I can conclude that my PC uses more power over time than my refrigerator.
