Look no further than Antec HCG series or Seasonic FOCUS Plus series. I have the Seasonic FOCUS Plus 850W for my 1800X and 1080 Ti. They're both overclocked to the maximum, and I never have to think about having any sort of issue with my power supply. Both solid brands with what appears to be very good products. 10 year warranty with either one you end up going with. Used both in different builds for my friends with no problems.

AMD 1800X w/ Phanteks PH-TC14PE (3850MHz, 100MHz BCLK)
G.SKILL 3200MHz CL16 16GBx2 (3066MHz, 14-14-14-14-28-42-4-6-24-1T)
GIGABYTE GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC (2038MHz, 5940MHz)
ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero (BIOS v6301)

The only downside with the Seasonic Focus Plus are the in-cable capacitors and the rating. The cables suck so much and makes cable management very frustrating. Other than that, it's a really nice psu and quiet. Just make sure it doesn't exceed 40c or it's rating wont be gold rating anymore, it'll drop down to bronze rating - So yes, I always have the fan spinning even though it has fanless mode as well, but if the rating drops then what's the point of turning it off?

*There is a catch with the operating temperature of this model. SeaSonic rates it as operational up to 50 °C but de-rates its power rating down to 80% for temperatures over 40 °C. Therefore, we consider the Focus Plus Gold 750FX to be rated at 40 °C for its rated performance.
