Your power supply is more than plenty. You have to understand that PSU is capable of more than it's rated wattage.

This is a review of the ax760 look at what it maxed out at. thumb.gif

860W is enough but it's pushing it. Titans can pull over 300W each when overclocked and a 3770K can pull close to 250W when overclocked, doesn't leave much room for pumps and other components. I'd go with a 1000W Seasonic Platinum if you really want a plat rated PSU.

Or the Rosewill Tachyon

The NZXT HALE 90 V1 is sort of Platinum its made before Platinum was invented so its a Gold that is very close to Platinum efficiency

I disagree. Entire system power consumption for one GTX Titan on a system with an i7-965 overclocked to 3.8 pulls less than 400w when running Crysis 3. It's plenty of power. Not to mention both the AX760 and AX860 can push out an easy 900w.

If you push a Titan using a modded BIOS though it can pull a rediculous amount of power, like 350W each. Plus a heavily overclocked 3770K can draw around 250W. We are talking maximum power draw but gaming load will still be somewhere around 750W. Then you have to take into account the two pumps drawing about 60W and 20+ fans.

an i7-965 and a Titan are gonna draw more that that...you cant look at what the thermal heat output is to judge how much wattage the cpu uses under HEAVY load, because it uses more. Crysis 3 is a HEAVY load. Especially when overclocked.

But in all, 860 should be good, 900-950 to be extra safe.

Check out the graph for a reference. The test system was using a i7-3970X at 4.5GHz with one Titan.

ok after watching TTLC vid on the 900D COMPLETE unboxing/explanation of whats it's capable of, there will only be either 16 or 18 fans (for a 240 monsta) thumb.gif Also I really appreciate all of the replies trying to help me figure this out and if need be i could go for a 80 plus gold psu.

Work out the averages, and a Titan-based machine uses 311 W through our test.

thanks for proving my point.


and it's not "thermal heat output" either.

Well after finalizing all the parts I have decided to go with the Seasonic 1000W PSU. the reason being that the rig has now been updated and has 19 120mm Cougar fans and the total estimated wattage pcpartpicker gave me is 797. Now that without the fan controller, the 2 pmw pumps, and not to mention the watts from overclocking thumb.gif
