But honestly (lets take into the equation the psu natural degradation and consequent loss of eficiency over time and the power meter margin of error) its cutting pretty thin! i had my system for over a year and nothing bad happened but that doesnt mean it wont happen to you! in all dynamic systems as our computers are,
the rule of the thumb is: "no system is the same" there is no such thing!
But your psu is one of the best quality around, it should sustain a good wattage flow for a long time, my corsair was already 2 years old and it held just fine but if you start to experience random shutdowns and bad game framerates, it could be that you need more "juice"!
just my 2 cents!

Thanks guys, appreciate the feedback. When it rains it pours, and I'm definately going to need a new psu. Bought a second GTX 590 Classified.
Couldn't help it, got an amazing deal! My girlfriend is going to freak!!! Less than a new 690 for both, though.
Any suggestions on which driver is best at this time?Edited by hotrod717 - 12/4/12 at 6:21pm
