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....
: 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 Edited by JunkoXan - 6/4/11 at 5:07pm
