Is my HX1000W still good enough?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have an aging HX1000W from three years ago, and it has worked flawlessly. I am however about to upgrade my build, and It got me thinking that I might be reaching the limits of the PSU soon.
My specs right now:

Rampage II Extreme
i7 950 @ 4.2ghz
Custom water loop with a single D5 pump
580 GTX 2 way SLI, slightly overclocked
8 DDR3 DIMMS,
About 16 fans (yeah, I don't mind noise.)
Some extra leds here and there.
4 HDD's.
2 SSD's
1 OCZ Revodrive X1
1 PCIE Soundblaster card

I am upgrading to a 4930k, and an Asus Rampage IV Black Edition. 4930k will be overclocked.
Later on, I expect to get a couple of 880's.

So what do you guys think? Am I already pushing it right now/with the 4930k upgrade?
Can I hold on for now, and upgrade when I swap GPU's? (880's might not use a lot more power than 580's).
Or will the HX1000W still be enough for the forseeable future?

Thanks a lot for your attention:)

You are absolutely fine. Now maybe if you were running 3 x 580's you might be pushing it, but even then I think you are OK unless you start doing some extreme overclocking.

Newer hardware use the same amount of power or less not more

There is only one reason to get a new PSU and that is to get a better one

There is zero reason to get more wattage

In fact you should buy less its way overkill for 2 video cards

I actually bought a little thingy that I plug into the wall-socket, and plug my PC into that, and I can see the watts it's consuming.
It is currently peaking at 970w when I stress it 100%. So I could definitely not buy a smaller PSU.

Thats from the wall not from the PSU

You need to take 20% off since you have an 80 plus PSU

Then system power draw would be 776 watts

I still dont belive that number it should never go above 600 watts

Of course, I completely forgot about that fact. Thanks a lot!
I do have a bunch of stuff in this case though, so it wouldn't surprise me if it pulled a lot of watts^^.
