It might even be the reason why I can't get 900MHz to bench stable in Vantage and Heaven with overclocks that work in 3DMark 11 and the Metro 2033 benchmark.

Haha okay thanks now that i established that much i can up the search. good knowledge i shoulda known though.

yeah sorry man if you notice in post... im not actually doing 580's for sure... im most likely waiting on the new nvidia/amd launch in late 2011/2012. but still..... epic is epic i wouldn't question it. Do you question why this other guy has 3X water cooled 580's hahahha. i do sometimes =p


but the Tri SLI board will simply be for headroom.

A friend sold me the psu in my sig and he said he tested it with three 6970s and worked . I think Psu wattage is a bit overrated these days .

I mean .. you NEED AT LEAST 650W to run a gtx480 , and mine worked perfectly fine on my cousin's 600 watter ...
