Been busy.

With the power tune edit and overclock on the HD6950, I'd say no go. Those HD6900 cards can take a huge amount of juice when treated like that, I really recommend a quality 500W unit in your case.

thankyou for your advice. Will be sticking with stock clocks

Woot, got a 580GTX today with my i7-2600k, 16gb ram. Works flawless on my 520watt unit from chill innovations.

I see you recommend 500w for that too, so thats just great. I ran IBT on maximum together with furmark for 55 minutes, no shutdown. This is so stable, I'm so surprised!

If the GPU overclocks aren't outrageous: yes.

I have the Corsair CX 430, not sure if it's the v2 or not. I got this after I RMA'ed my CX 400. Box doesn't say v2 or anything.

So, here's what I'm wondering; I have:
E7400 @ 4GHz 1.456v cpu-z/1.48v BIOS
RAM is at 2.32v BIOS/2.29v HWMonitor
(1.32v on my NB if that matters)
4x 120mm fans running full out 1600RPM + 1x 140mm fan on "High"
An EVGA GTX 460 SE is on the way....

Can I do it with this psu..?

Note: The CX 430 only has 1 6-pin pci-e connector.


I have a PCP&C 470w Silencer sitting in it's box but I don't use it cause it only has a 4-pin cpu plug--not an 8-pin. Should I use it to power just this card?

*I'm only doing this so I won't have to buy BF3 for my PS3. I've already ordered a new monitor and card. Not being a "heavy" gamer, if I can make this work, I'd prefer it.

Thank you.

An E7400 will work fine on just a 4-pin, it doesn't require an 8-pin. Even a Core 2 Quad can use a 4-pin if you aren't overclocking.

Hey Phaedrus, I made a thread here: http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...80s-tx750.html asking if a TX750 could handle SLI 580s on my rig. I've been getting mixed answers, so I wanted to hear what you think.

There is no CPU overclock, and I won't be overclocking the GPUs.

Because it consumes less power than an i7 (mainly due to lack of hyperthreading).
