That is closer to what we should be getting in an 800W psu. Because of that, I am skeptical it will be able to handle two quads and quad sli. I base that on estimation that the two quads need ~250W at stock and much more if you can manage to OC which isn't easy with Skulltrail. Plus figure about 450-500W for the 2 GX2 at full load. We are almost to 65A already ignoring hard drives and such. Now, the catch is that nothing you can do will load all of those components at once so technically so don't need more then the 65A you have. But on the flipside, it is better to have some breathing room for the PSU so it is stressed less and thus operates at a lower temperature and lasts longer and has better efficiency. If you can afford it, try to look for an 80A 1000W psu such as the Corsair hx1000, the Silverstone OP/DA1000, Thermaltake Toughpower 1000 and the Xigmatec HC1001.


edit- Also, if you plan on overclocking be aware your NorthQ only has 1 8-pin 12V cpu plug AFAIK and it is not recommended to overclock with only one plugged in, it's best to use a psu that has 2.
Thermaltake Toughpower 1000 is on it's way.. That's the one with the best specs as far as i can see.

thanks for the advises shinji2k

Good luck getting the Skulltrail setup going. It's looking like a beast. Here is a review on the Toughpower to get an idea of how this baby handles: http://jonnyguru.com/modules.php?nam...=Story&reid=53

Well, i hope it will be a beast!.. I'm planning to make a project thread about the build-up.. Like it or not, i'll try to make this fit in one of my old Aopen HQ08 cabinets, (i love those) but it's a huge job.. The entire cab. has to be lengthened with 3-4" The Skulltrail is E-ATX form factor and that eliminates the possibility to have both MB and HDs in the lower area, cause the MB it self is 13" long.. (1 inch or so left).. Added a few pic of my pre-modded HQ08 (current setup)

As it is right now, its heavily modified inside, cause it was fittet with Asetek Vapochill a couple of years ago.. Looking forward to get started with my loved cabinet!..

.. Just affraid the 2 Xeons and the 2 GF9800GX2 will overheat that box in no time, but i'll try to fix it..
