EVGA GTX 780 TI SC Reference SLI + 2x D5 Pumps, 360&240 Rad ROG OC Panel Enough for AX860?

post #1 of 5

Hey guys, i'm currently in a dilemma....

So currently i'm running a i7-4770k w/ a Asus ROG Maximus VI Extreme OC'd to 4.4ghz, i have a single loop CPU/GPU using a D5 Pump, and a single GTX 780 TI in my computer, along with the OC Panel from ROG and 6 SP120 Quiets, and 1 AF120 Quiet and a AF140 Quiet, 4 DIMM's of Corsair Vengeance 1866mhz. All running off of a Corsair AX860.

I currently have a second 780 Ti waiting for it's waterblock, a second D5 pump, and a bridge on its way. I'm a little hesitant on getting a new power supply just due to the $100 i spent on the Corsair Sleeved Cable Kit + ATX Cable, and the money i spent on the AX860... the cables won't work on anything higher than the 860 is what the Sleeved cables say...

i've used several TDP/Watt calculators, and i hear two sides from all the threads i've read... does anyone here have personal experience with a setup similar to mine on a PSU similar if not identical to mine? i'd really appreciate any input... I want to have a new PSU ready for me if need be when the parts get here, so i can hobble it all up together at the same time... but if i can keep my PSU that would be also really nice..

Please any great guru of experience, and smart thoughts! i would really appreciate some help! and some wisdom! redface.gif

I had SLI 780s, 14 fans and a 3930k on a corsair rm850 and it worked fine. Just don't push 300+ watts on each gpu and you will be fine.

Would that be if I over clocked or if it was under load that it would hit 300+ watts

If you are running a stock bios, the card should draw a max of 265w assuming you have the power slider set to 106%.

If you use Skyn3t's bios and the extra voltage steps to 1.212v then you will probably get to 300w.

This is all assuming the card actually draws what the bios is set to allow it to draw.
