Quote:A hypothetical scenario:
In a mild overclock Ryzen pulls 140W and whole computer ~ 299W (some earlier Watts measurements)
C6H is good for LN2 cooled overclocks, so this may get higher amperage at lower volts but power would go up even more.
Now add the GPUs. Each 1080ti is _rated_ to 250W (before it gets overclocked). A mildly OC'ed Ryzen with 2x 1080ti adds up to 800W.
If the upcoming AMD graphics card (Vega?) pulls an estimated 300W and the motherboard allows 3x AMD GPUs we are at 1200W.
Add several (all eight?) SATA storage and you are at 1300W or more.
If you plan on 3 Vegas coming in a few months then get a C6H with all three power plugs connected to get Crossfire in Crosshair, bad pun . If you go with 1 or 2 Nvidias then X370-Pro would suffice. Other than eight SATA plugs and more power capacity I saw no difference between the two motherboards. Maybe the VRUs run a bit cooler in the C6H.
