and this is antec we're talking about, not some generic psu.
What the crap are you talking about? Unless you have some super GTX580 from the future that runs on dark energy, a fully loaded SLI 580 setup will use close to 300W from the wall from just one card.

He's religiously following the information by Linus of NCIX without doing his own research of power consumption.

Here's the video where Linus checks the power consumption of several different builds

While you have a great point that the Antec is a great PSU, your 300W use is likely only at idle...

Your CPU + GPU's should push about 600W at full load minimum. With no overclock.

With my rig, my UPS reports 413w on full load, so you should have no problem.

It sounds like you don't know how efficiency even works.

Ok now that I've been up and running on my setup for a week or so now, no hitches ^.^ Do you think because I am already running a bit less wattage psu that I should avoid overclocking my graphics card with the auto-tune feature?
post #27 of 32
It's absolutely fine. I've run a 4870x2 off of a 400 PSU before, and at the moment am running an HTPC with a 5850 at 100% load 24/7 with a Corsair CX400, with absolutely no problems.
Its always good to have overhead though.

My whole system drew 260w from the wall (So about 230w) when benchmarking furmark and prime95. No idea how power consumption compares between our cpus but yeah you are safe to OC.

No offense but it seems that you WOULD have to have an idea how power consumption compares between our systems to say something like I am safe to overclock.

You just need to know roughly how much power your GPU/CPU is capable of drawing at overclocked speeds.
