600 Watt PSU for SLI? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
A quality 600W? Yes.

Yours? Probably not, unless it's the TR2 600P. The 600P is a CWT PSH unit and would be fine. The TR2 RX and other TR2 versions are all mediocre to crap and shouldn't be considered more than 300-500W PSUs, depending on specific model.

Ergo, you'll probably be dealing with not one, but two molex to 6-pin adapters. In order to do this right, you need four separate strands of molex connectors, two dedicated strands for each adapter. How many strands of molex cables come off of this PSU? I doubt that there's 4. Nowadays it's unusual to get any more than two strands of molex connectors.

All in all, while it MAY 'work', I would consider that particular PSU to be totally inadequate for SLI 460's.
This, only reason I have a TR2 is because I accidently fried my 1200w PSU.
I can't run my 580's in SLI while gaming or benching without major artifacts.
