Sure is like my AX1500i in my build but I love how its fan never turns on! No sound...no dust...

bustacap22 Yes, i do plan on under volting the cards. I do have a Corsair AX1200i at the moment. Based on what I am hearing that PSU should be sufficient.

epic1337 but he has a point, with an overkill unit he won't ever be worrying about upgrading regardless of what hardware he uses it with, except maybe a TEC chip or the PSU dies.

Martin778 I've had a single Vega64 LC and with increased power limit it was hitting 400W+.

If you plan on doing OC/Bench sessions I wouldn't go below 1200W. However if you buy, let's say, an AX1600i you're done for life on buying PSU's.

Abaidor Get a Corsair AX1600i and be done with it...best PSU out there bar none.

Maybe bit of a gimmick

that actually sounds good for a bench/test rig, better than kill-a-watt at least.

If you're talking about single GPU then it's att least twice an overkill. 800W is a bare minimum he'd need for dual V64 (which I'd actually discourage to do) if he intended to undervolt both of cards, 1000W is already giving a nice overhead for overclocking. But he'll end up almost capping the PSU anyway.

epic1337 well according to the threads in those forums, Seasonic has a solution by giving you cables with inline capacitors.
they also recommend using two different 8pin cables instead of using both pins of the 8+8pin cable it comes with.
