Corsair 650TX Safe Load (Crossfire)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello ocn, I currently have this setup.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 (OC)
G.Skill 8GB 1600Mhz
1TB WD Black
1TB WD Green
500GB WD Black
500GB WD Black
1GB Sapphire 5850 (OC)
Blackmagic Design Intensity Pro (HDMI Capture Card)
HAF-X

I recently bought another 5850 to crossfire them and wanted to know if that would be around the safe operating limit for running most of the time.

I was also going to push for just a eyefinity setup with a buddy of mine's 5850, on a bare setup to try eyefinity out. I was wondering if this psu would be able to handle it, if not what would be a recommended upgrade? (I was looking at the 850TX)

3x 1GB 5850 (OC)

If I'm reading this right you have 2 5850s in the top rig? If you're asking about 3 5850s I'd say it'd be cutting it close with everything OC'd and you'd be safer with the bigger PSU.
If 2 a 650 is plenty, if 3 a 650 would still be enough, but I'd recommend higher for OC headroom.
People FAR over-estimate the power consumption of their parts.


Also use Phaedrus's* PSU calc it's quite good.

Thank you, I am not running 2 as of yet (The card has been shipped to my uni and I am still at home xD).
