Did you do any power calculations on that hardware?

That's full tilt though, not normal gaming. You'd have to be running Intel Burn Test and Furmark at the same time to hit those numbers. IMO, it would be fun to build it and see if the PSU supports it
They make 600W SFX PSUs, so worst case scenario you 'd have to buy an upgraded unit.
Reason I even considered the idea was because I saw another OCN member's SG-5 w/ a GTX780 on Haswell, and he was doing fine with the 450W Gold+ modular that Silverstone makes, so if he can do it, so can I!
An aside, but Sub mention overclocking, and this prob. won't be but to 4.0 flat... Call me weird.
I'm buying the Apogee today, and this build will be my first cut-case-mod EVAAAARRRRRR, other than those two drill holes in the S3...
I gotta fit that 7950 w/ Komodo block somehow
