Will this support TWO 6950s?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I have TWO Asus EAH6950s 1GB... will this PSU support them? They will run 24/7

it's $60 AC!

That's pretty cheap. Yes it will, with more than enough room to spare for overclocking.

The PSU is ready for your SLI or CrossFire configuration with both 6Pin and 8Pin PCIe connectors

a good quality 750W will do them just fine, 850 is perfectly fine

There's 100A between the 4 12v rails. I would definitely say so. Just a quick tip though, Rosewill PSU's aren't the most reliable...I've had several of their "top-end" PSU's die on me. Luckily, they never took any of my components with them. I switched to a Corsair and I will never look back!

Yes it should support two 6950s since each uses 2 PCI-E plugs and it has 3x 6pin and 3x 6+2pin plugs that works out to 1x 6pin and 1x 6+2pin for each card plus a spare of each for triple CF.

Awesome guys, I mean for this price I think it's a good gamble no?

I don't think this is a real 1000W PSU. 52A on +12v is not 900W (unless Rosewill mislabeled it). A typical 650W PSU has about 54A on the +12v rail. I would lean towards no on this PSU.

For two 6950's, get a good 650-750W PSU.

It's a solid Sirtec built unit, it will support 3x 6950s, nvm two
But what's wrong with your current PSU?

Holy crap, I paid $129 for that unit about 10 months ago. And yeah it will power them just fine. Had 3 480's running on this bad boy at one point in time.
