What is the Max my PSU can do?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Could I put 3 580s on it? Or would the max be two?

Also anyone got a good program that will measure my draw?

No piece of software can measure your power draw. The simplest way of measuring how much power your computer is using is to get a Kill-A-Watt. That measures how much power you're pulling from your wall outlet. Through simple math based on your PSU's estimated efficiency, you can determine somewhat accurately how much power your components are drawing from the PSU.
And yes, 1000W is fine for three 580s.

Based on the tri 580 scale, they can take up to 580w alone if OC. i7 at 4.25G can take 220w
depended on voltage, plus others, number may be around 920w. That psu can 80a/960w on 12v, it seems to be on the edge for tri 580 but it should be fine for 580 sli.

If you clock the 580s up a lot (watercool them for example) then you may be pushing it. But with the cards at stock or near stock, you should be OK.
