Is my AX860i going to be enough for my overclock?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I am about to put my water cooling part together but I have been wondering since day one if my Corsair going to be enough for the build or do I have to buy another PSU thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif


here are the parts:

4770k - will overclock it to whatever frequency its going to get to at 1.4v
2 EVGA 780 classified SLI - I am also going to overclock both GPUs
16 GB ram Corsair dominator platinum
ASUS Maximus VI formula
2 SSD & 2TB 7500rpm

Water cooling parts:
6 Corsair 120
1 D5 EKWB pump

what do you think?


thanks in advance thumb.gif

For a comparison; My Corsair AX860 (non i) runs a 4670k, single GTX 780, ASUS Gryphon Z87, 8GB Corsair Dominator Plats, 1 SSD, 9 Corsair 120's, and 1 D5 Pump. I don't think I'm anywhere near maxing it.

I did a quick run down of the specs you gave me on this site and the recommended wattage was around 750W

If you don't overvolt the cards at all, then the 860i is enough.

You can overvolt and overclock the cpu all you need to. Also can overclock the cards, just don't overvolt.
