Maxing out a Corsair?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have a 750tx(version 1), and am powering up 2 gtx460 768MB, an overclocked phenom2 at 3.625Ghz, and a total of 11 120mm fans and the 200mm fan on the 1200. I have a 9800GT that I want to throw in for physx, and was wondering what you guys thought. I know it will be pushing the PSU quite a bit, but would you guys do it.

The reason I ask is I was looking at getting the Kingwin 1000W Lazer Gold, and didn't want to upgrade if I don't really need to.

Thanks Guys

Cool, just wanted to make sure. I thought I was alright, but didn't want it to bite me.

You're pushing it with that PSU.
Especially since you're overclocked. My guess is that your full power draw is ~700-750W. It's not good to run your PSU at more than 80% for extended periods of time.

It should be fine.
Although you don't really need a PhysX card with SLI 460s...

A 9800 will not noticably boost frame rates over what a pair of 460s in SLI can do, but should you desire to try, then it will all run fine on that TX750.

Got it hooked up, and played a little bit of crysis. Framerates went up a little, which is always a nice surprise. I will do some more testing to figure out if it is worth the trade off of one of the 460's running 10c hotter than the other.

I would wait on Crysis 2 and see if you should get rid of a 460. What settings are you running Crysis at? Make sure with 2 460's you try very high/enthusiast and 4-8xAA. Crysis loves GPU power, but is CPU limited as well. If you were hitting your cpus limit with one 460 it won't change too much with an additional one.

Max the game out and see how smooth it is. Would also try metro 2033 dx11 everything maxed and see how that goes. Find the highest playable settings on 1 card, then maxed with 2. 460/560's are finicky so it may be hard to get maximum performance from them with a 3.6Ghz Phenom II. You should get nice gains in IQ and a nice bump in performance though.
