GeForce GTX 580 3-way SLI

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME
Processor: Intel 2600K (I wanna overclock it to 5ghz around)
SSD: VERTEX 3 120 SSD
MEMORY: 8GB DOMINATOR GT

Which Power Supply can handle all of that?

I was thinking in maybe the CORSAIR AX 1200 OR ANTEC HCP 1200?

Thanks...

I'm using a 1000w for just 2 so a 1200 should be okay for 3.

using a AX1200 myself...can't go wrong w/ either the AX1200 or HCP1200

I had a HX1000 unit, but I wanted a peace of mind, so I upgraded...stuff adds up quick as well, hdd's, fans, overclocks etc

A good 1000W unit can handle it easily. No need for 1200W -- that would be for quad-SLI.

That didn't really work so well for me. I bought the AX850 for GTX 580 SLI and it would only run one card at once. Maybe it was the PSU that was 'faulty'. but I don't know if I wanna risk, get another PSU that will 'handle' my needs and then realize that it doesnt...

If the money is not an issue, I should go for the 1200 power supply right anyways?

I mean, if my computer consumes 950 watts, then it will consume those 950 watts either in the 1000 power supply or the 1200 power supply right? or it will consume more in the 1200? o.o

I don't know what the cause of your issue is, but assuming your PSU is working normally and is able to deliver its 850W, then it is more than enough for your system (rather than merely "handling" it). If wattage isn't the issue, and you buy a 1200W unit, and it doesn't solve your problem, then you're out $300 and no further along solving your problem. That's all I can tell you
And I stand by my statement that a good 1000W is perfect for three GTX 580s. Although if you're getting that, I hope you're either folding or have multiple 2560x1600 monitors, otherwise it would be quite a waste in my opinion.

You only need a 850watt for 2 way.

I'd say a good quality 1000 watt PSU for 3 way.

HX1000 or the antec high current pros are good choices
