Read through damn near every single page, and I'm hooked! Great work, I'll be creeping hard on this one ninja.gif

Wondering how much juice this box is going to be sucking from the wall at full load. lmaosmiley.gif

Chris, The 680's pull about 173 each under load and the 3930k @ 4.7 will pull 525 from the wall. In contrast, my 580's pull 240 each under load and my 990x pulls a little over 420 @ 4.6. Get two very good PSU's and balance the load as well as you can. Just my 2!

How much does the 3930k pull at stock volt? I previously calculated an AX850 to be enough for a 3960x at stock volt + quadro + H100 ... your numbers make me think I may need to crank up the PSU.

At stock, the 3930k pulls about 250-252 under load and about 130 at idle.

But does that 173 under load include only the power being supplied directly through the 6-pin connections....or does it also include the power coming from the molex connectors on the board?

173 watts is what they will pull per card. In reality it will probably pull almost all of that through the 6-pins, though it might pull up to 75 through the pci-e. I'm not sure how it balances it.

Is there a link or a chart somewhere that tells us how much power these Pc Hardware "pulls" ? Maybe I should just start writing this stuff down!redface.gif

No it does not, at stock under full load the 3930K uses about 130 watts of power according to Intels specs.

That is thermal design power. Not the amount of power it uses. Two different things.

Finally read through this whole build.  I'm currently studying at UT, so it pains my heart a little to say this, but I can't deny that what you're putting together is pure awesome. Awesome job Chris! thumb.gif
