I can run 1.3V very comfortably, but won't because 1150 is where I hit a wall regardless of the voltage. However, 1200Mhz+ 1.3V is perfectly safe and common 24/7 overclock. I don't why you brought up folding, as these kind of numbers can be achieved during both gaming or benching.
My 3770k at 4.6Ghz 1.3V pulls 185W (167W as per platinum spec) from the wall during cinebench multi threaded and most likely more during prime, and since Haswell isn't considerably more efficient, I can't see how you couldn't hit these kind of numbers with it.
I also said that 860W would be enough in my previous post, so I'm not completely disagreeing with you.
220w was a "real number" supplied by you while looping heaven. that's why i used it. as for going with 1.3v. that's questionable as to the stability of it if you were running it at 24/7 under F@H. my understanding is 1.25 was a safe 24/7 number. 1.3 is simply for epeen/benching reasons.
i brought up F@H because it's something that is run all the time for those involved so it's like having benching load on your system 24/7 for months at a time. can very easily be switched to mining or something that stresses your rig at a constant basis for LONG periods of time. i've also mentioned under gaming loads, the machine will never be stressed to max under every core so TDP was already a generous estimation. so running F@H is more or less a "worst case scenario" for the rig as far as PSU load is concerned.
I'm not entirely convinced the OP realizes what he's asking for
to achieve the kind of load to overcome the capability of an AX860 is difficult
POSSIBLE, but difficult and VERY LOUD
loud to a point that you really don't want to be in the room with it for long periods of time and you may have to bring in additional air conditioning to adjust for the temperature rise in the room over time. having a 800+ watt heater on 24/7 in a room does add up quickly if you intend to be in the same room with it and most air conditioning system is not designed to handle that amount of constant thermal load in anything other then the living room.
