Best PSU for SLI GTX 670s

Okay so I just bought two Zotac GTX 670s 4GB editions brand new off eBay for what I believe to be a good deal. Got both of them for $522 with shipping and like I said they're brand new too. Anyways I'm diffidently going to need a new PSU to run them. But I'm not too good on deciding what PSUs to buy lol.
I plain on OC both GPUs and my CPU to as high as i can get them. The GPUs will be on stock cooler so that won't be too high of a OC but I plain on putting my CPU on a Corsair H100i. So that has be kept in mind for the PSU power too.

Here is a list of all my current components (Future components)
CPU: AMD FX-6350
Mobo: AsRock 990FX Extreme 4
Ram: 8GB(2 x 4GB) of G.Skill Sniper Series @ 1866 (going to add another 8GB soon and might try to OC the ram higher then 1866)
GPU: PNY GTX 580 (Zotac GTX 670 4GB x2) Will OC both
Hard Drive: 750GB Segate (512GB Adata SSD & 4TB WD Black) will remove the 750GB Segate
Fans: 6 Case Fans and two 120mm CPU fans.
Sound Card: HT Omega Claro II
PSU: 600Watt OCZ 80 Plus
Case: CM Haf 912 (Thinking of getting a Haf X, IDK yet if they are good for water cooling)
Also have a Blue ray drive/burner and a fan control unit.

Sorry for the sloppiness but yea, I just want a good PSU that can handle the 2 670s and the cpu with OC and maybe ram OC. Also money is no issue to me so I'm not wanting cheap.

  1. You just need a PSU with four 6 pin connectors. But you might as well get one with four 8(6+2) pin connectors. There are dozens of models to choose from:

    I'd go easy on the OC thou. Your FX-6350 is just going to bottleneck those GPU's anyway. Even an 8350 bottlenecks 7970's in crossfire.,3407-5.html
    But the 670's in SLI will still work good for u. You're not benchmarking against an i7.
  2. I also forgot to mention. I will be adding a PCIe capture card, probably AverMedia live hd gamer or whatever it's called. The good one lol and a PCIe wireless card maybe.

    And I figured my FX would be a bottleneck but I want to wait to buy into intel once ddr4 is out. So I will either get Haswell E or Skylake. I just got the fx and motherboard because my old setup was a amd phenome ii x4 965 be and some shitty emachines motherboard with 6gb of ddr2 at 400mhz lol. I just wanred something better but didn't want to go all out yet. So thats why I got the fx. But a 850 will be more then enough then? And should I get a 80 plus platinum or gold?
  3. This 850w unit made by the best in the business SEASONIC , will do the job.

  4. Best answer
    The first and third ones are the best choices , the Cooler Master you linked is also made by the best SEASONIC.

    Grab the V-Series from Cooler Master.
  5. I think I will go with the Cooler Master then. Since I do, do wire management and it has some nice cables.

    And one more question. I have 3 devices that I requires sata power. My HDD, DVD Drive, and Fan Control Unit. Can all 3 run off one sata cord from my PSU since the cord usually has 3 sata connectors on it, or should I use 3 separate cords from my PSU?
  6. Yes it can , if the one cord \ cable lines up with all the devices.
  7. Alright thank you. =) Well that answers all my questions. Thanks everyone for your help.

    It most likely won't but I will buy some short extensions so it can reach all 3 devices
  8. Glad to help , thanks for posting in the forum!
