AX850 Enough for GTX 580 SLi?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello guys

I was wondering if a GTX 580 SLi along with a Core i7 2600K build will be handled by a Corsair AX850.

This PSU along with the improved efficiency and also by the improved power consumption of the i72600k could do the trick. Is that right?

GTX580 is 250w and draw a bit more in bench. The ax850 can pull 70a/840w on 12v and usually does a bit more than its specs so it should be fine.

Yes no problem whatsoever. I specifically got an AX850 so I could add a second 580 at some point in the future, it's totally enough, even with everything overclocked and a bunch of drives or fans etc thumb.gif

Absolutely...even with a decent overclock.

The PSU will run this easily and even with as high overclock as you'll reach. No worries.
