would my PSU run 2 580's in sli ? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
If you're in the US, the Antec TP-750 is indeed a good deal at... what, $89.99 currently? It's the best deal you're going to find on any 750W unit.

And yeah, people saying your current PSU will run it are correct, and I agree with them, it'll run two GTX 580s fine. Just with a high level of ripple, which is not cool.

Look in the OCN market place, there are a few quality 750 watt PSU's for sale

Besides, it's assumed that people will be overclocking if they're coming to Overclock.net for help.

I think trulsrohk means overclocking the GTX 580's. If I'm not mistaken, the review above only has the CPU overclocked while the GPU's are at stock.

From what I have read, overclocking a couple of GTX 580's (depending on if voltage is increased or not) can add anywhere from 100-200W depending on how extreme the overclock is.

What do you think of that PSU?

Can someone also explain to me what ripple is ?

Don't get the Corsair TX850.
Corsair just released the TX850V2 which is a much better unit. It's only a few pounds more expensive.
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=CA-039-CS
With that being said, here's the unit I would recommend instead:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=CA-005-XF
Internally it is identical to the TX850V2 I just mentioned, but it's £30 cheaper. Downside is it's got a 3-year warranty vs. Corsair's 5-year warranty.

Thank you, would this PSU be able to handle me overclocking them aswell? Obviously I would not hugly overclock them because of the extra heat in sli and I am running them on air.
