Edit: I have 2x 120mm fans and 2x 80mm fans no fan controller, water pump etc. Only 1x DVD RW drive.

I am aware of the PSU calculators out there. I just wanna hear what you guys think ^^
Basically no. It might boot up and work if you haven't overclocked anything but it would be pushing the PSU VERY hard. You wouldn't be able to overclock at all or you would be way past the PSU limits straight away.

I understand. I really want a 750W+ high quality PSU so I can install CF later in life.
(since my MB can manage 16x on the PCI-e ports in CrossFire) it would be awesome. Thanks for the reply

ati his 6870


card @ idle load is running 300 gpu core but still 1050 memory (i have dual screens). Is it because of the dual screen?

also playin world of warcraft the diff isnt that huge , gpu load is around 20-30% in a full raid , is something wrong there? some of the lag is gone though. i upgraded it from a 4870 which died after 2 years

Yea with 2 screens the idle core clock is 300 but memory does go up afaik. From what i hear WoW is more heavy on the CPU with huge raids and stuff, idk lol overclock your CPU more?

its a Q9550 the game doesnot max out my cpu it sits around 20-30%.

is there a way to make edit the idle/2d profile for it to download the memory as well?

would be gr8

idle temps are around 59-60 now because of the high memory clock which sucks

WoW isn't all that great for multithreading. Are you sure it's not loading a full core?

So are there any good universal overclocking programs with voltage control yet? Does afterburner support voltage control? Last time I checked, it didn't.

The beta versions of MSI Afterburner works fine.

there are some settings in wow to make it use all 4 cores , its around 17-20% on an i7 950 so that cant be the case.

yes i am sure its not loading a full core ;p

i dont really know what else could be the problem , atm i am waiting for my other games to arrive and downloading 3dmark etc.

would be nice if i can edit those idle clocks just to play around with them

my pc is open 24/7 i hope it wont be a problem currently with those temps and gpu mem always at full speed
