Sure, I have an H80i, a single SSD, two mechanical HDDs, and a few fans. Sure, it's nothing more than what is listed above by a user with 770's...but it is not the same card, and there for, does not exhibit the same loading behavior.

I love how people without the hardware comment differently than those that do have it. There's where the split in opinions lays.

So lets say my system is a bit much compared to the OP, even by 100W...running a 850W PSU @ 85%...no thanks. get a 1000W, and have that bit of overhead. With the 860i costing as much as it does, clearly money isn't the factor here, so buy a good 1000W unit that costs just as much, and have some security in the longevity of your system.

so around 760+ watts actual load on the psu. an AX860 would be fine for your setup too friend. thumb.gif.

Nope, not for me it isn't. No reason to run a PSU near the limit except for money, and money isn't more important than having my system running for a long time without issue.

I mean, sure, can be done. Might get a part of two, that makes it not possible, or a bunch like I have. I'd simply rather not worry about whether my PSU is going to work or not, and over-spec than anything else.

that's good reasoning (although having nearly 100w headroom isn't what everyone calls near the limit) but the OP asked a simple question and despite everyone's differing opinions and viewpoints, evidence (all I did was take some rough numbers and add the up, you provided the best evidence so far in the post I quoted above, so thanks) points to the answer to that question being "yes". if he wants a greater sense of security than that's up to him to decide, but it erroneous to state so matter-of-factly that it's necessary. cheers.

They're accurate enough for the casual builder.

I think they are aimed at purchasing low end units, to still have headroom for long period loads.

Oh yeah. Man, that's just me. I mean...I have this picture of my meter. Obviously I might be a bit more.. Ahem... "attentive"... to this issue. I put no less than 50 benchmarks in my board reviews, and I do use clamp meters to measure per-cable power draw, too.

You will get accurate wattage requirements the quality PSU needed is still up to you.
