Does these power consumption numbers look appropriate?

I have the following system running 24/7, mostly at idle, in a home environment.
I measured power consumption over several days using a Killa Watt meter at 216 Watts per Hour.
Does that look appropriate for these specs?

Supermicro SC846 w/ 920w SQ PSU
Supermicro X10SDV-4C-TLN2F Xeon processor D-1521 (using both IPMI and 10Gbe NICs)
4x 32GB DDR4
LSI 9300-4i4e HBA
3x Noctua 120mm iPPC fans
2x Noctua 80mm fans
2x Noctua 60mm fans
6x Intel 2.5GB SATA SSD
6x WD 14TB white label HDD
18x WD 8TB white label HDD

I dont think its too far off...
~50W for the board
~ 5W ea /drive = 120W
~ 2,5W ea for the ssds =15W
some for the hba and small parts...

Certainly doing better than me. I also have an 846 chassis with the same motherboard and I average a little over 300W with 24 SAS drives (mostly idle, but drives seldom spin down). Granted, I don't have the SQ PSUs and have the stock fans set to full since it's in a datacenter.
