760w for dual E5-2689 enough?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I ordered two E5-2689 (TDP 115W each) and would like to know if my Seasonic x760 is enough to run them at full load. I also have a FirePro v7900 (AMD rates it with "Max Power: <150W), Adaptec Raid 2405, 3xGentle Typhoon 1850, 1x120 Noctua, 1x140 led, Aquaero 5 LT, Alphacool 655, 2 WD RE3 and 2 WD Caviar Black. I also have a Wacom and a Colormunki Display connected all the time.
Input would be very appreciated. Cheers

Thanks, that is awesome - exactly what I hoped for! Now I'm curious, why companies that build workstations, as well as users, use 1200W for dual cpu and single gpu.

Dont know why they do that

Seems like silly overkill

Unless they have 500 hard drives hooked up to it

For workstations, some it's maybe for lower noise levels, others for very slightly higher reliability, partially so they can maybe just validate one power supply and use it across a range of hardware, allowing for upgrades like that huge stack of hard drives, and so on.

Users mostly just don't know what's up or hold out some kind of pipe dream hope for dropping $$$ on quad-SLI or something one day.
