Is my Cooler Master Silent Pro 1500 enough?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm building a computer and I'm kind of at a stopping point as I had to return a faulty mother board. I'm not a bit concerned that my
PSU isn't big enough.

I looked at some websites where you enter your info and it gives you calculations but they are all over the map from 1330w to 1950w

If you think I need more than that 1550 I have please suggest one or two. Especially if they have 4 leads that go to 8+6pin for each graphic card.

Keep in mind I will do "safe" overclocks on the CPU, RAM, and GPU's

Thanks



Here is my hardware list below

CPU: Intel i7-4960X Extreme Edition LGA 2011 Processors BX80633I74960X
RAM: x2 Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 DRAM 2133MHz PC3 17000 C9
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX
GPU: Quad SLI EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN SuperClocked 6GB GDDR5 06G-P4-2791-KR
Main Drives Raid 0: x2 Samsung Electronics 840 Pro Series 2.5-Inch 512 SATA_6_0_gb Solid State Drive MZ-7PD512BW
Storage Drives Raid 1: x2 HGST Ultrastar 3.5-Inch 4TB 7200RPM SATA III 6Gbps 64MB Cache
ASUS Xonar Phoebus ROG Gaming Soundcard Set
ASUS Computer International Direct Blu-Ray Writer BW-16D1HT
5.25" Multi-Functional LCD Media Dashboard with USB 3.0 1394 E-SATA and Card Reader

There is also 13 fans and 4 small water pumps

I'd suggest doing multiple PSUs with that many graphics cards. Kepler takes a crazy amount of power when overclocking. People are reporting 1300 watts with just two 780 Classifieds.

What PSU do you actually have?

More specifically GK110 under LN2 with volt mods?

No reason to volt mod the Classy when it can go to 1.35 volts with software. smile.gif And that's under water, not LN2. That's getting a little warm, but within tolerance levels.

EDIT: I realize he probably won't be modding his cards to push to 1.35 volts. However, I figured I would throw that information out there at what just two cards can do. Having 4 cards at say 1.21 (Nvidia's maximum allowed without modding) would consume a crazy amount of power.

Deafboy,

I bought the Cooler Master Silent M2 Pro 1500

The top and bottom of the case is filled with radiators pumps and fans. No real way I can go with two power supplies easily. Hoping this one is enough.
Or maybe the Hurcules 1600 is a better option?
