post #31 of 33
No, it isn't a good idea to SLI GTX 570 on a EA650.

Measured power consumption

System in IDLE = 218W
System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 578W

EA650: Max load on the 12v rails is 540w

Now is that Power pulled from the wall outlet or PSU itself??

If it is power pulled from the wall/power metter then real power consumption of the system would've been 578W x % efficiency of the PSU used for that test = xxxW..

For example if PSU used for that test had 85% efficiency then real power consumption of that system ( a Watts pulled from the PSU itself) would have been (578 x 85) / 100 = 491W..

CHEERS..

So what I got from all this is: If I just play games and don't overclock, I will be fine. If I want to use Furmark/OCCT/Overclock, I will need atleast a 750 (Probably going to grab a 850w as my next upgrade)
Thanks guys, I think I'm going to wait for the P67 recalls before I grab my next 570 though. I feel kind of fine playing on a single 570 atm, since I'm only on a 1080p screen. I'm in no rush.
