From rough estimates I've seen on here, your CPU overclocked can pull close to 200w and a oced 780 can be around 300w so you should be okay. I'm running a 2500k @ 4.7 with an oced 780, 7 fans, 3 HDD's and 3 ssd's all on a Corsair HX 750. Have you tried using a PSU calculator like this one? http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine
It's not perfect, but will help give you a rough estimate.
While I'm here I have a question about using Afterburner just for the LLC tweak.
I installed Afterburner on my bench OS to play around with the new voltage control options and noticed something odd. I'm running the TI ACX bios and get a max of 1.212v using Precision, however when I installed Afterburner pushing the voltage slider all the way to the right would only get me 100% or 1.168v for some reason? I was hoping to try just the LLC tweak first and then try using the 1.3v tweak however because I could only get 1.168v I had to proceed to using the 1.3v trick. Did I miss something here? I checked the unlocked voltage control in the Afterburner prefs as well as checked the .cfg file to make sure the values were set there and they were. So yea any help would be appreciated.TLDR:
Moded bios, 1.212v in Precision. Only 1.168 in Afterburner?Edited by NRD - 9/2/13 at 12:27pm
