^^^ biiiiiiiig reason why I like the Antec PSUs. I could purchase a 1000W (or 850W) when every I want to start OCing with all 4 cards in, and use it to power some of the GPU plugs to balance the load so that the 1300W isn't being overtasked.

I mean I could probably buy one of those adapters to use the Corsair I have now with the Antec when that time comes, but we'll see.

Another thing I just thought of with the Antec, it having so many PCI-E connectors, I can finally get rid of the adapter I've been using for the PCI-E extra power connector the RoG X79 board has:



That would be nice. lol

Question to the gurus that have helped and/or those that still want to help:

I csn get the Antec HCP-1300 new for ~$300, or the LEPA G 1600W for $289. With those prices and given that even Johnny Guru gave both these PSUs very high marks, which would you think I should go with? I do still plan on a secondary PSU for OCing with a 4th card in, but that'll be later, I'll run the cards at stock til I get a secondary PSU.

I was about to mention that you really ought to be looking for a minimum of 9 PCIe power connectors, but it appears that you are at least partially powering the "EZ_PLUG" connection, but I would still offer that a native 6pin would be likely somewhat better.

Also, even if you don't OC your RAM much/at all, I strongly recommend plugging in the second EZ_PLUG, the 4pin FDD PWR connection. I have found that the morecards iI run (3930K @ 4.8-5.2 + RIVE + 16GB DDR3-2133 9-10-9 atm), the 6pin becomes essential but the 4pin actually takes off some of the load, compared to the measurements my Fluke DMM gets with the 6pin or 4pin only.
Basically, the greater the number of wires and connections-in over which you can spread the power draw, the better. The 20+4pin ATX standard simply was never conceived to have so much power running through it, and I have seen what happens when people ignore the supplemental power inputs on their boards when bench clocking... It's almost always "POP! *smoke* (incessant swearing)" in that order, but once I saw the plastic connector and wire insulation for the 24pin actually catch fire and burn...

Ever since I started sleeving, or rather about two weeks after I started, I realized that for all the work I was doing, why was I not simply making my own, custom, made to the exact length necessary, wires? While for an audio engineer my knowledge surrounding electricity is only slightly above "don't stick forks/body parts into the outlet!", I do have a basic grasp of what thicker wires and/or superior insulation and shielding bring, and thus I decided that since I would be powering up to 4 voltage unlocked GPU's + highly clocked SNB-E hexacore + 4x4 gigs of very highly clocked memory (1.8v+ for benches to get to 2666 and higher, with timings around 8-11-9 on a decent kit), and the fact that it was a whopping $3.77 to get 16AWG/22AWG instead of the 18/24 that's typically used (poor house here I come!), at the very least I spent a less than a fast food burger for peace of mind (and less arterial plaque! Win-Win!).

If you have the time, I strongly recommend making your own cables. It requires no skill to start, seeing as I was able to do it, and the benefits are numerous, one of the biggest to me was that I never have to deal with the obnoxious, idiotic way "stock" SATA power plugs are each like a foot apart from the next, requiring 9 hands and a ferret just to get drives connected; instead, my SATA PWR plugs are spaced the exact distance apart as the drives sitting in their cages, and that alone reduced cable clutter by a third or more (and improved airflow a fair amount, too, because where else can you put the many feet of stupid wire besides shoving it between drives?).

Much to my surprise, I also found, when measuring voltage afterwards, that the slightly thicker and significantly shorter wires resulted in approximately 20 percent less ripple at peak loads, from +/- 22mV on the 12V rail to 17. The droop when 3D benchingwith four cards was also improved, with t 12V rail remaining between 11.94 and 12.08v from total draws ranging from 120 to almost 2000W! Prior to that, it would drop as low as 11.895 and bounce up as high as 12.105v. Temps of the VRM's decreased by 6-8C (could just be coincidence), CPU VCORE and both VDIMM and VGPU became more stable as well.


Another tip I'll give you that I have been using since the RIVE first came out and I noticed that the backside VRM area was quite warm: mount a fan to blow on theBACK SIDE of the socket, I use a 120V AC 120x45mm steel fan that is pushing 150+ CFM and 20+ mmH2O, and it dropped the VRM Temps by a solid 10C with a block already in place! Since you are using air, I suggest turning the rear case fan from exhaust to intake and mounting 1-2x 40-60x10mm fans atop the VRM heatsink on theffront as well.

Wait, that 4 pin plug thats tiny on the Rampage IV Extreme is a power plug? It didn't mention it anywhere when I was assembling it... huh. Looks like you're right:



I've been running it without that and with the 6-pin supplemental power plug off an adapter like in my pictures since I got this system about 2 1/2 yrs ago. O_o lol The AX1200w doesn't have an extra one for it when I'm running 3 video cards, or I'd use it of course.

As for the fan on the back of the motherboard thing, my case has a port specifically for that, I'll have to try it out. As far as front of the motherboard goes, it gets plenty of airflow, it has these blowing on it biggrin.gif (side of case laying there), air channeling Silverstone Penetrator series fans.



Edit: btw, my RAM is at stock, native 2133MHz CL9 1.65V, I have both the 8 & 4 pin plugs for CPU power connected.

The antec HCP 1300 has 10 PCI-E connectors, and ofc you can use the dual link feature if you need more.

If you lived in the UK, you could have bought a pair of them for just a little more than a single one usually costs, and actually at the same price each as the 850w version tongue.gif

The HCP does look like the best one for you.

On my motherboard, I'll need to plug two 4 pin molex cables into the board to power 3 way SLI, I'll get that done when installing it tomorrow, unless the cables are too short and I need extensions frown.gif

Couple of follow up questions now that I know I need to plug that FDD pwr plug in.

1: can that and the Double-4-pin-to-single-6-pin adapter I use for the other EZ plug be on the same line, or should I have them be separate (I'll be running TriFire again starting Monday so I won't have a native 6-pin plug available)?

2: given my case layout (pictured above) would you say mounting PSU on bottom would be better overall? Asking more poignantly for when I get the Antec HCP-1300 or LEPA g 1600W

3: which PSU out of those two would you pick? (I'm leaning towards the Antec even though both have gotten rave reviews from Johnny Guru)

Erm, 10 PCI-E 6+2 pin plugs on the HCP 1300. You will have plenty with that one biggrin.gif

But I would think that 1600w would be plenty for OCed quad fire wouldn't it? If it isn't, then stick to the antec and add an 850w later for the dual PSU feature.

Then we can have the same PSU biggrin.gif

But I would think that 1600w would be plenty for OCed quad fire wouldn't it? If it isn't, then stick to the antec and add an 850w later for the dual PSU feature.

Then we can have the same PSU biggrin.gif

From what twerk previously posted power-figures wise, 1600W wouldn't be enough with a decent/expectable OC on the cards, with my CPU being what it is:

I'm not entirely convinced the HCP-1300 would provide enough wattage, OCP kicks in at just over 1400W from my testing so you may end up triggering it with a decent overclock on your cards and CPU.

290X @ 1.35V/1150MHz = ~422W
3930k @ 1.29V/4.6GHz = ~201W

(422x4)+201=1889W

Of course, you may not be overclocking the GPU's that high but it just shows how quickly power draw goes up, and that's not even a particularly extreme overclock.

And I fully expect all my cards to be able to do at least 1150MHz core or they'll be sent off red-card style and replaced so tongue.gif lol
