In that case, why do you own a Corsair H100? thinking.gif
Anyways, yes, it will work, but it's dangerously close to the limit. 1200W is 300% overkill, if not even more. A good quality 650W will do you perfectly fine, which will also allow overclocking. If it was me, I wouldn't use it for long. Keep in mind it can bring your entire system down with itself, if something goes wrong.
Go with a 750W if you want more headroom.

Everyone talking about PSUs somewhat, can anyone tell me how to find out how much my PSU is pulling? Free programs or something?

don't need to know that with an ax1200i, LOL biggrin.gif i don't know any program that can monitor that! there are plenty watt measuring things that you plug into your wall socket and then you plug your pc in tongue.gif

Best way to figure out total PSU usage is to get a meter that plugs inbetween the psu and wall socket. They are like $20 at home depot or online. http://www.amazon.com/P3-International-P4400-Electricity-Monitor/dp/B00009MDBU

Multiply your total usage by your efficiency rating - so if you're pulling 550 watts at 80% efficiency then you're components are only using 440 watts...

The Intel Extreme Tuning Utility is a free and worth while download from Intels website and it'll tell you how much electricity your CPU is using, among other things. Not sure about GPUs or total PSU usage

How would software be able to do it? Software would have to read values from some hardware sensors somewhere, right? But there aren't sensors for everything in the computer...

The way most people do it is to use a cheap household power meter like a Kill-a-Watt. Those aren't particularly accurate, but it's good enough for most consumer usage.

edit: wow, I'm late to the party, huh?

The power supply the OP have will obviously do the trick. However, I don't see the point of buying a 1k$ and go cheap on the PSU. Yes it can take it, but it will be full load whenever you push the machine, the fan will scream at you to pull it out of it's misery ;P.
Just remember that wattage does not tell everything biggrin.gif.
