You can Quad/Tri Fire with this... puppy

won't beable to show untill i can get my Motherboard back from RMA(as mentioned within the sig and above) soo yea..

p.s the video card will be overclocked more hopefully to 900/4000/1800 if it'll let me without overheating maybe 950/3900/1900 if i feel lucky i'll more then likely max out on volts trying to get it such clocks and hopefully be stable and cool. and i got 6 fans running at 100% with fan controller, loud but worth the cooling...
k run furmark + prime95 for 24h with no bsod / driver crash /overheating (bcuz i really doubt ur 900ish OC is stable with evga lol ref cooler) and plz plug a watt meter and take picture of ur 550w under load PLZ DO IT! ooh and add a OCCT 8h with Zero error to that plz.

I bet he's pulling even less than 500W.

mmh actually no, thats my point ..

The thing is your PSU is inefficient at idle. If you are not folding 24/7, you will be running your PSU below optimum efficiency since it is idle most of the time.

Actually yes.

Full system with i7 6 core and 800 MHz 460 pulled 325W. Wheres that extra 175W coming from?

multi GPU is the future. look at nvidia (AMD chips also are getting bigger) making bigger and bigger chips. sooner or later they could cover the half of standard size graphics card pcb.

as for this X2, its not first uncommon card from powercolor

First the 965 is a quad core but whatever because its same TDP as a 980x... and we're talking about SLI here with nothing at stock voltage. In this review its a single 460 at stock voltage and a core i7 965 @ 3.75ghz (probably very low voltage required for this OC).

Edit: and yea 1000w is overkill most of the time , since i dont play game or run benchmark 24/7 but its still a beast PSU that will handle anything ill throw at it (I do plan to keep this unit for a while and give it a try with BD + Tri Fire 6970 on a triple 120Mhz 1080p Monitor Setup, waiting for CPU benchies!).

Hmm I assumed he was running a single card as he referred to it as card rather than cards. My mistake if it's SLI, >550W is believable then.

should read what i said again.... never once mentioned that IT IS 900+mhz but did mention that i will attempt to do a 900+mhz oc tho, of course you'd know that if you read it right and not read what you wanted it to read..

even under OC loads it should be atleast or under around 550watts in single mode i mean i can do most of the CPU OC using the voltage it has now which should do me for 3.7ghz avg then add on the .11 volts which hopefully can get me the 300mhz needed for 4ghz stable or atleast 3.9 ethier one will do im running on a 750 watt here i know once everything is OC'd to the numbers im hoping to get i'll still be within the 50%-75% area which will be around 550 watts - 575 600 watts being in extreme cases, and my power supply is 80 plus efficient soo it will use less power drawn from the wall which works to my advantage aswell for the 550-600(extreme case) watt mark. also to OCCT and Furmark when it comes to GPU testing uses way to much heat and wattage hell doesn't even resemble real world use since real world use is gonna be much lighter in terms of heat and watts used but i do plan on using furmark(tho i got kombustion which is the same as furmark) i guess if that'll satisfy your little curiousity.

i still think 1000watts is overkill for that setup tho....


Iceman: i appreciate what is being said and well your actually not far off my power supply usage is actually really low once everything is back to stock( stock clocks for my GPU are 850mhz soo ) i'll pull up some numbers on idle and loads i think 950mhz on a ref with enough cooling (4 110 cfm fans and 1 corsair h50 fan (radiator intake fan) and 1 case fan(at the bottom of the front panel to subtle cool my hard drive) should be cool enough in terms of heat as for voltage i think i should have enough voltage to do it once it's maxed out atleast it's worth a shot right..

also to my ambient tempetures with my 12000 BTU on at high and running on cool can do 50 degrees F or 10 Degree centigrade if not lower in the living room here i think atleast it gets EXTREMELY COLD
