Scroll to the bottom for power comparison:

6850 vs 560ti

Both idle the same. 560TI runs 50W higher. If you are truly worried, lower your CPU overclock to stock voltage - saving power to compensate. Your CPU isn't bottnecking anyways so there wont be any issues.

Looks like if it can't then it will just shut down.

15A on the rail makes me think you are fine though... don't overclock it.

I wouldn't worry about the 3570K overclock, you are below the 400W limit of the power supply, it's the max current the rail carries that'll matter I think.

Cheers,

Ok ,i have another question: Since i did not want to create a new thread,i decided to wrote my question here.The question is:
Which PSU will suit me best? My rig in the sig ,i want future proofness to be safe with something like gtx 680 or hd 7970.
http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6790 GX LITE 700W Cooler Master
http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=2573 RealPower M620 Cooler Master
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096 SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W
They are all on the same price in my country .All i search is future proofness and being safe with sli/crossfire on latest gen gpu's.
