Im going to put stop now for this PSU topic, first of all i asked while ago that can i run GTX 780 SLI on stock settings (DCII OC models) and a 2700K @ 4,8Ghz on 650W quality unit, everyone basically said solid NO (1000-1200W recommendations mostly). Well i have now back my Seasonic 660W platinum and i decided to run this setup since i pretty much knew it cannot draw insane numbers, and yes i was right, highest what i have seen from wall is 630W in the last 3Dmark...
Am i missing something here, but how GTX 780 SLI needs 1000W psu to be safe? Lets do some calculations here, lets say that all is on stock settings and we combine all parts TDP. CPU: 90W GPU1: 250W GPU2: 250W mobo + SSD´s: like 50W max We are now sitting at 640W at the very maximum what the system can draw from wall, and to get this kind of numbers you need to punish your system with furmark + Linx AVX. Im pretty sure the HX650 can run GTX 780 SLI with my 2700K @ 4,7Ghz...
If we need to wait couple weeks for patch that it works on all configurations, then they might aswell delay the release.
What kind of real world power usage GTX 780 SLI will consume at gaming? Im about to buy 2nd GTX 780 DCII card and i want to test out SLI with my spare HX650W, not planning to overvolt the cards. Im pretty sure this will work just fine, since HX is a quality unit, not some chinese bomb psu . Full system: 2700K @ 4,7Ghz (1.35V) Maximus IV Extreme 4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz DDR3 1x Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2x MX100 512GB SSD Raid 0 Corsair HX650W
Decided to buy Accelero Extreme IV and try out myself if i can install it to a DCII 290 card, yes it works and it works flawlessy (did not use the poop VRM backplate cooling, since it doesnt fit to DCII PCB, used original VRM heatsink and left out mem and VRM 1 without any heatsinks like they are stock in this card, also used stock DCII backplate). Anyway, now some tests what i made in GTA V 1 hour session: DCII stock cooling @ 55% jet engine speed with -38mv and stock...
Yeah i know , but i have seen picture of 780Ti DCII which Accelero Extreme III installed with backplate :/, damn so confusing.
Anyone knows if Accelero Extreme IV can be installed on DCII card with the stock Asus backplate and VRM cooling (just using the mem heatsinks from the package). If not, then im going to pass and probably going to RMA my card, since it gets over 90C in gaming even at stock clocks and @ 60% fan speed, which is like jet engine and toaster combined (should not be this bad?). Case is Arc Mini R2, which has more than enough air flow, all case fans are AF120/AF140 from corsair.
Is it possible to install Accelero Extreme to 290 DCII card with the Asus backplate and with the stock VRM heatsinks?. Jesus christ DCII cooling is loud and hot in this card, absolutely ridiculous. Gonna be my first choice for aftermarket cooling, if not then i will install AIO on this one.
I recently built new system with i7-4790K + Maximus VII Gene, so far i have gotten pretty nice results OC´ing the haswell chip, its been gaming and IBT stable with just 1.2V @ 4.6Ghz. Havent even tried more or lower vcore for the 4,6ghz setting, im sure it will go more, its not even delidded and max temps with Corator DS was little over 80c on some cores in IBT, in gaming its like max 60c. Gonna try push it more when i get my Swiftech H220-X. Using adaptive voltage now to...
Make engine purely with uber PC hardware, do everything as good as they possibly can be done with the uber hardware -> Dumb down for consoles after that = Win. But this seems to be impossible job for developers, all we get is some 8-bit retro games and unoptimized broken PC ports with locked 50 fov and 30fps.
