I've have had a tri sli GTX Titan setup for about a year but never posted any pics but please add me to the club! I figure better late then never!
So now I've got a question I'm hoping you guys might be able to help me with. My build has the following components:
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Formula (Replaced with ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3930K
Memory: Corsair Dominator GT 16GB Quad Channel DDR3 2133 MHz (CMT16GX3M4X2133C9)
Power Supply: ThermalTake Tough Power 1350W (TP-1350M)
Graphics Card: 3 x EVGA GeForce GTX Titan (06G-P4-2790-KR)
Hard Drive: 2 x Crucial m4 256GB SSD (CT256M4SSD2)
Water cooling components
CPU Block: Koolance CPU-380I
GPU Block: 3 x Koolance VID-NXTTN
Radiator: 2 x XSPC RX480
Pump: 2 x Koolance PMP-450
Reservoir: Koolance RP-452X2
I had some issues with my build and after a ton of diagnostics it appears that my R4F ended up going bad. I have since switched to a R4BE and after some initial testing with all the original parts everything seems okay so far. I have not yet added the three Titans back to the loop because I am running some burn in tests on the motherboard and then I plan to put a water block on it before I rebuild the loop.
I am concerned with the stability of the PSU. At first it appeared that my PSU was faulty so I received a new one via RMA. That PSU caused both motherboards to throw the Anti-Surge warning as soon as the PC started up so it appears the replacement one was DOA. I do have the system running on my original PSU with just the CPU and an old graphics card but I'm now looking into other options before I get everything reassembled.
I checked on newegg and when looking at all 1250W+ PSU's the SeaSonic X-1250
has an overwhelmingly higher number of positive reviews than any other PSU in that range.
I've always heard good things about SeaSonic so my concern is simply, will that PSU have enough juice to run my power hungry build?
Once I get it all back together and I run stability tests at stock speeds I do plan on cranking everything up to a safe 24/7 overclock on both CPU and the three Titans and I want to make sure the PSU I end up with can handle it.
If anyone here happens to have a similar setup can you please respond with any suggestions etc?
