Problems after failed overclocking. - Page 2

They measured a system with a GTX 295 and OCed i7 965 / X58 @ 416W full swing here. A 600W PSU should cope OK with that.


A 16A household circuit breaker should be far enough for your PSU's input AC current:


Just don't stress-test the GPU while the microwave and the toaster are on smile.gif .

My 680 runs 9A, factoring in efficiency, I might be pulling like 11A for it. I'm pulling 30A for my CPU (I hit 45W @ 1.35V) so I'm pulling quite a bit of power. On the same circuit I have an Thlon pulling 95W and a 640 in another rig. It takes another 10A (A/C and a TV) to blow the circuit. I'm in an apartment too.

When it comes to power - All you will need for an OC'ed single GPU system is 550W max on an 80+ Bronze PSU. I have an 850, but I could load in an extra 680, mod their BIOS and OC their volts, OC my CPU to 5GHz, and fold 24/7 with power to spare. You would be surprised how little you will actually need.

As a side note, I've actually seen this happen. I helped a guy with a crazy problem and an unstable OC. Turns out, it wasn't the OC, it was instead the fact that his rig was on the same circuit as the kitchen, and when the refrigerator cycled on, his computer would bluescreen.

So just make sure that you know what else is on the circuit, even under normal circumstances its something thats good to know.

Good Luck smile.gif.
