folding @ home and power supply question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
so here's my problem
i want to fold with all my gpus when i go to bed and my cpu
here are the specs:
gtx 470 x3, gtx 460 x1 (stock speeds/volts)
cpu i7 950 3.8ghz running 1.38vcore with ht on
i want to fold with all those
BUT
will my psu handle the load?
cooler master silent pro m1000 (to be exact)
of course when i fold with gpus i run the smp client as smp 6, gotta leave some for gpu,
currently when i fold with the 3 gtx 470 along with cpu smp 6 the load is around 86%
so i figured i could add another gpu to fold with but i'm afraid to burn my psu or have it pop my internals XD
any help would be appreciated
if you're interested in the psu specs here they are:

Your PSU should be fine. It's a solid unit.

You'd probably be hitting 800-900W, but the PSU is good. Oklahoma Wolf passed it with fairly good flying colors.

i don't think it is acculy a 1k unit, probaly abit less but none the less its still good enough to fold on your rig.

It's a 1kW unit.

@OP you're fine.
