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..
