Recommend a PSU or 2 for this folding beast

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
So I'm toying with the idea of building this for a dedicated folding machine.

1 - Intel Core i7-2600K


1 - MSI Big Bang-Marshal


1 - Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB (2 x 4GB)


8 - SPARKLE SXS4501024D5SNS GeForce GTS 450



I'll probably grab a HAF-X to house it all in. The GTS 450 can draw a touch over 200 watts under full load from what I have read. Should I even try to get away with a single 1500watt PSU or would I be pushing it to try?

The 1500w silverstone strider should be more then enough.
And the gts450 doesn't draw anywhere near 200w, around ~130w actually

Considering the GTS 450 uses ~100W under Furmark, I don't see the need for a 1500W PSU. While that would definitely be enough, a good 1000W will be able to handle your system.

Decent 400W would run it. GTS450 is a 100-120W card, not 200W.


Edit: Oh, wow, EIGHT. Um. Ok, maybe an HCP-1200 or AX1200?

He's putting 8 GTS 450 in there

Hey Phaedrus2129: he's going to have eight GTS 450s in it.

Really? Maybe the review I was reading listed total system power instead of GPU only. Either way that's great news. Thanks for the replies gentlemen

1500watt????????!?!?!?!?!?!

Try 450w. Even that's overkill.

EDIT: 8 GPUs. I see
