It should work, because that is in fact an 825W PSU IIRC. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work with some other "750W" PSUs, especially since you're overclocking the CPU and the video cards. Any idea how much the liquid cooler consumes?
Swifty, I got the PC&Powercooling brand because the forums all said it's the best of the best. And because of the single rail. I'm not sure if the corsair one does, all the sub $100 ones i've seen don't.
Also Swifty, good mobo, i was going to buy that one, but they were out of stock. The asus P5N-D is the same 750i non-reference design as the evga one, just minus the lifetime warrenty.
Aevm, No, i'm not sure how much power it takes. It says it uses 600mA.
I'm certain that my system at full stock with x2 260's would be fine at 750 watts, however, it's all the OCing of both cards and the cpu/ram i'm worries about. I couldn't tell you how much extra wattage i'm using as a result.
I just wanna be sure it's enough before i buy the other videocard.
How is that TX850, is it quiet? I might want one too soon.
Actually it is quiet. And it seems to run cool so far. Runs about 14-16 hrs a day on av. The thing about not being modular kind of blows but I can hide the extras away pretty good. it was this or the 1000 watt job...... didn't need it.... saved more than $100. I paid $112 for it.......... pretty good huh?
WICKEDSNOW: there are no problems with that power supply. a friend of mine runs a custom build shop and uses a ton of those........ at least until he started buying bigger stuff....lol........ no problems with any of them. Don't sweat it.
Both you guys have been a great help to me, so thank you both. I'm going to go ahead and buy the other GTX260 core 216 like i want and OC it also. A few posts up, i mentioned that for (just in case) I used the OCed GTX280's for the PSU calculator and not the 260s. If i use the SLI 260s it tells me my wattage used is 498W.
Ouch seriously? My current one fully OCed is running a static 70% fan speed and 55C while playing games. but i suppose it's because there not another card right next to it? My 750I Asus mobo doesnt give me more than 1/4 inch between both card.s (when i buy the other one).
My case has x2 250MM fans on the door side of the case blowing on the cards.
Make sure you get some serious cooling. The GTX 260 SLI is one of the hottest things in PC history.
I have 2 OC'ed GTX260's. Before my sli set up I had both cards running alone in separate machines. One was in a core2 dua with a Corsair 520. the other was in an old AMD machine with a 650 watt Cooler Max ... i think that was the name...?? the one with the 650 ran hotter than the one in the 520. when I swapped them out and made an sli set up with the 850 Corsair both cards ran cooler. I'm not saying they don't get hot......... the warmer weather proved that, but different set ups ( boxes/sufficient power/ cooling ) all make a difference.
