I had actually switched the loop to the a spare 20amp when I was running the quad GTX 480s with an i7 3820.

I was pulling ~900-1000w with the quad 690s and that system had 28 fans (which only add a bit tbh). That was a few months ago. I do recall when gaming on the Titan sli, the psu fan was working hard.

I'll have to run a game and check it again. Quad 580s was pulling ~1600-1700w at the wall.

Well, I'll have to test this again. The reviews show a 1050w should be fine. I'm sure something is wrong because I have ran triple 580 3gbs on an Enermax Galaxy 1250w unit before.

EDIT: You've only got a OCZ ZX 1250w right? How can you be doing 1650W at the wall....As you said that's over 1400W DC load. My Seasonic X-1250W starts sputtering when I'm over 1000W. Furmark + Prime 95 on 5 cores at the same time causes OCP to kick in or some power limit to shut my computer down.
Are you able to sustain furmark + Prime95?
Stay away from Furmark mate. Not worth it. And I did participate a long time ago in a power test (voluntarily) for the amd HD69xx series. That was the last time I ran Furmark w/ prime at the same time. This is a suicide run. Won't run it again. Nor will i use furmark or kombuster.
I have 3dvantage, 3d11, and just got 3d2013. I also have a few game benches. These are enough for me.
I'll have to run this again. Everything is in pieces awaiting my new case. Hopefully, UPS can make the rounds and deliver early.

I almost went to 1050w let's say losing 200w for what reason. Just for a full modular psu . Hey keep pulling the much power from the wall lol cuz you are werMAD LOL .
For the quad 480s, I ended up running a 1200w for three and the system and a 450w booster for the 4th card. The quad 580s ran on a 1500w unit.
Again, I think something is wrong so I'll be running this again. The demo test in 3d11 was the one spiking to 1650w. Most of the test ran ~1400-1500. Really, i was expecting ~1000w at the wall. Maybe my Kill-A-Watt is broken.
Anyone else want to share their numbers to make sure this is wrong (hopefully
