Don't take it personal, nobody is attacking you, they are just saying the numbers seem a bit off, and I would agree that 1500w from the wall is way to much for your system, should be topping out at around 1000w.
My system, 3930k @ 4.5 and two 290s@1150, two water pumps, ten fans, five HDDs will hit just over 1000w from the wall when benching, I am using a HX850w, I can not push the CPU and graphic cards at the same time, its just to much, but when gaming with cards at default and CPU at 4.5 I draw around 650w to 700w at the wall, which is fine for a 850w
So if I wanted to run some benchmarks with my CPU and Graphic cards at max overclock, I would probably draw around 1100 to 1200 watts from the wall.
So you see why others think that 1500w is a bit off for your system ?

Yep, sort of what I'm seeing.

I am getting huge benefits using Mantle with my 3930k@ 4.5. easy around 25%
15 minutes recording each in a full "Firestorm" 64 player server, first person spectator mode.
Would be very hard to go back to using DX11 now.
