Seasonic X-Series 660W for Crossfire 6870

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Thank you all advance for reading and helps. I am in the market for a new system and I am slowing piecing it together. I am waiting for the ASUS Gen3 to hit the stores, but so far I am planning on getting the following and I was wondering if the Seasonic X-Series 660W will be enough. I did few search on google, but nothing exactly for what I am looking for. Thanks again!!

1 x i7-2600k - overclock to around 4.5-4.8 if possible
1 x ASUS Z68 Gen 3
1 x 8gb G.Skill Ripjaw X 1600
Dual AMD 6870 Crossfired
2 x 1 TB SATAIII Western Digital 7200
1 x SATA DVD Burner
1 x PCI Internal Wireless Card from Linksys
1 x NZXT Phantom
3 x Case fans
1 x Seasonic X-Series 660W

For 6870 CF yeah that's fine, your overclocking might be limited though.

Should be fine, but as post #2 said, Your overclocking ability may be limited.

Your overclocking won't be limited, not with a X-660. My X-650 can handle two 6950's shader modded with an overclocked 965, that is a top tier product right there have fun with it.

This shows wattage from the wall:



Take into account the PSU efficiency, say 85%, the actual value would be 381w. That is the full system while running furmark. The seasonic is a quality unit and can handle that with ease including overclocking.

You're not going to be limited to overclocking, that PSU is more than enough
