Good lord, look at that efficiency on 110V at 50% load. Almost 94%!!!! <img alt="drool.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/drool.gif"><br><br>
Seriously, I think I should just buy this PSU and be done with it.

I actually cannot wait to use this PSU! I've had it for months now, but this build has taken much longer than I had planned. <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">

So I can't decide between the 860 and 1000. System specs:<br><br>
i7 3930k with a target OC of 5 GHz (looks like this will pull 275 watts or more on its own)<br>
16GB RAM<br>
Gigabyte GTX 670 with a target OC of as high as it can go (140 watts or so here)<br>
2x 2TB 7200RPM HDDs in RAID 0<br>
6x Gentle Typhoon AP-15 fans<br>
6x Gelid Wing 14 fans<br>
MCP655 pump<br>
Aquaero 5<br><br>
I think all that together should easily hit somewhere around 450-500 watts on full load, but it will idle probably around 200 watts (this is a complete guess, I admit). Based on the Chiphell chart linked above, the jonnyguru review, and 1-2 other reviews, the efficiency sweet spot seems to be between 40-60% load. I don't plan on going SLI, but I will definitely be upgrading to Big Kepler when it comes out, and it's looking like that sucker is going to be quite power hungry.<br><br>
What you guys think? Seasonic Platinum 860W or 1000W? Price difference after shipping between the two would be exactly $40.

These have a 5 year warrenty, long time to not plan on upgrading. I thought a 750w would be enough. I was limited within the first year i owned. i didnt plan on upgrading either but .... ya know

I'm sitting almost at the same with no WC setup but do have an H100. At idle, mine runs at 96W. All I can tell you is that my 860W serves me well. Couldn't tell you whch to get.man. That is so up to you. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

My system at idle is pretty min too, run my seasonic on fanless mode and for the most part never hear it. The Matrix 580P requires a 720w psu for a single card....ouch right. With oc ram, cpu, gpu, 16 fans, 1hdd, 2ssd, lights, H100, H70 and all the crap plugged into the back of the case.........pretty sure im getting close to 800w if not more

I have a UPS with a digital read out showing my wattage use. I have my monitor plugged into it as well. When I'm idle and the monitor goes off, I get the 96W. When the monitore is on and I'm streaming netflix and on the web it hits 141W. Just another reason I never hear the fan come on.

Not with a GTX 580 you're not. You're pulling maybe 500w at MOST with your sig rig.

Yup, and pioneer is giving you lots of room just saying 500w. I bet you pull 380w from the PSU while gaming.<br><br>
Here are my values from when I had a single 580:<br><br>
i7 2600k 4.6Ghz @ 1.30v. ASRock Extreme 3 Gen 3. (2) 1.65v Memory. 1 GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme @ 941MHz @ 1.113v.<br>
1 HDD. 1 SSD. 1 Optical Drive. 1 LCD Fan Controller & Display. (9) Case Fans.<br>
Sparkle 750w Gold Class @ 89% efficiency<br><br>
Idle: 112w / 89% = 99w<br>
[email protected]: 418w / 89% = 372w<br>
Prime95 (Small FFTs): 250w / 89% = 222w<br>
Prime & Furmark: 480w / 89% = 427w<br>
Gaming (BF3): 395w / 89% = 351w<br><br>
Do you use more power than I did with your single card setup? Yes. Alot more? not really.

Hi guys. For ~$200 would you get Seasonic Platinum 860 or SS-1050XM? I know that both of them will be overkill for my system (I have GPU upgrade planned for next year though), but since the price is relatively the same...<br><br>
EDIT: So far I only see advantages of Platinum 860 over X1050 as 7 year warranty and fanless mode for up to 30% of load compared to 20% 1050W unit. Since I won't need 1050W in any possible way (dual-gpu setup is max I will ever do), I think I will pick up Platinum 860 <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">.

Well I finally did it, and ordered the 860 (good price too, $15 less than anywhere else online). Hopefully I'll have it by the end of the week so I can post the proof pic to be added to the club and to add the club sig to my sig. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">
