I got my new stuff in!!!! I'm re-downloading GTA V right now. I went with the 5820k and purchased the Asus X99 Deluxe 3.1 and 4 x 4GB DDR4 3200 and picked up a new PSU, Corsair HX 1000i. I've never had two installs of windows in under an hour, first 7 then 10... Insane how much faster everything is now.
I replaced my CPU water block with an EK Supremacy EVO as well and I only had to replace one water pump. I think the older one was locked up or about ready to be. I can actually see the water moving again lol. Had an issue with the memory booting at first but after taking all sticks but one out and then setting the XMP Profile, I was able to get all four sticks to boot together at their rated speeds.
Sorry super geeked right now!
In regards to your overclocking. I read some stuff from kingpin where he said that these cards can pull up to and possibly more 1600WATTs by themselves one card, under ln2. He did a wattage reading when pushing his.
I think my PSU might have been holding me back a little that cold night I pushed it after looking over some numbers from other people etc.. but just a guess and it was about 5 years old so, I figured I might as well get a new one. I love the full modular design, much cleaner.
Push it man!
