This it is getting hard not having my rig. After awhile you grow accustomed to a certain level of performance.

Hey guys had a quick question. Would the Silverstone ST45SF-G be able to handle an overclocked 7970 and 3570K at 4.2 at stock voltage?

On another note, if Dwood was able to cut those filters yesterday, he'll probably be shipping the cases on Monday smile.gif

I would say yes, but it might be a bit of a strain on the unit. The 7970 draws something like 225W at full load. The reason I say it should work, is because I'm running a 680 which draws about 200W, and its been running fine. I just pulled these numbers from the manufacturer's pages, so take them with a grain of salt.

Here review of 7970 http://hardocp.com/article/2013/03/11/asus_hd_7970_directcu_ii_video_card_review/9

They tested with a Sandy i5 @ 4800MHz and overclocked 7970, max power draw from the wall was 425W. At that power draw, the PSU they used is 88% efficient, so about 375W internally. So this means you probably have at least 100W overhead if not overvolting the CPU. Not withstanding that the ST45SF-G has been torture tested up to over 500W before it shuts itself down.

All good, no problem thumb.gif

I found this via Google digging; PSU support list by Silverstone and scroll down to the last page to see the PSU in question smile.gif

I think they are naturally conservative about guaranteeing compatibility with high end GPUs for the same reason that AMD says you need a 550W PSU at least to run the 7970. Because they have to anticipate the most harsh environment that consumers will put their PC into. People in very hot countries, badly ventilated rooms, with cats or dogs hair covering all fans, loads of CCFLs daisy chained on molex adapters, huge overclocks on both CPU and GPU, etc etc.

SLE has been running a GTX 570 in his rig for a good while now, and it has the same kind of power draw as the 7970, and in exactly the case you are planning to use yours. At least this should be good evidence that it's no problem.

But Lutfij makes a good point: if you need to RMA and you say you ran a 7970 on that PSU, they do have a reason to charge you for repairs.
