And if PSU would be overloaded it would just shut down..


Only issue would be lack of PCIE power connectors as your PSU has only 2 x 8Pin and you need 2x 6Pin also..


CHEERS..
Hmmm, very, very tempting. Too tempting. I know I lack the PCI-E connectors, but that's why the cards are shipped with PCI-E adapters :-P I just filed for a return of my original GTX 570 which I ordered off of Amazon.com. They say I have to return the item by July 5th, which gives me a little bit of time to play around with it, lol!

I'm running a Q9550 @ 4GHz and a GTX480 @ 840/1025MHz on a CM PSU which has only 43A on a 12V+ rail..

Now a stock GTX480 uses 360W in Furmark and I'm running it OC'd @ 840Mhz so only God knows how much it uses in Furmark at these clocks (probably close to 400W if not more)..

But still my rig is perfectly stable in Furmark and everything else (OCCT PSU Stress Test, Games, 3DMark 11 etc)..

Now you have over 200W more on 12V+ rail and a SLI GTX570 which in games uses similar power to what my OC'd GTX480 uses in Furmark..

So do the math..

It would run no problems at all..


CHEERS..

Well thanks for the input Well, I actually don't have an SLI bridge, go figure. Looks like I'll have to order one or see if Fry's/Microcenter sells them.

You didn't get a SLI bridge with the P67 Sabertooth? I know you don't get a USB 3.0 bracket with that board though.

The ASUS P8P67 PRO comes with both an SLI bridge and that USB 3.0 bracket.

No, it does come with an SLI bridge, but I don't have the box with me lol. It's at my parent's garage. Looks like I'll be making a trip there this afternoon.

Well, the issue has finally been resolved. I uninstalled my 275.33 drivers and did a driver sweep. Then I installed the 266.58 drivers that 5outh was talking about. Spot on fixed it. No issues with Crysis 2 OR ATI Tools. I guess it was just sheer bad luck that all this happened (meaning I got to the faulty level) on the day I left my OC on. Oh well, at least it is all fixed!

And as for the SLI, KingT you were right. I am running both those cards in my system now without a problem Probably close to the maximum my psu can handle, but I'll enjoy it for a few days before I return one of my 570's

Just what I was thinking.

Your PSU is fine, that is more than enough for 2 570s.
