I did the Antec PSU Calculation and it came up with 1150w but that seems a bit over the top? TIA More about : psu rand_79 November 18, 2010 6:11:28 PM where are you getting 1150 from? I'm getting 820 with 10 fans 5 hdd and an oc to 3.5ghz (on that calculator) that was with a 80% load it said 800 was fine. ct1615 a c 164 ) Power supply November 18, 2010 6:12:47 PM 1000w is a bit over the top a quality 850w from seasonic, xfx, antec, corssair is more then enough for you CPU: Intel Core i7-920 @ 3.33GHz Motherboard: Intel DX58SO (Intel X58) Chipset Drivers: Intel 18.104.22.1685 (Intel) Hard Disk: OCZ Summit (120GB) Memory: Patriot Viper DDR3-1333 3 x 2GB (7-7-7-20) Related resources What PSU for my build? - Forum What PSU do I need for crossfire r9 290s? - Forum What PSU best for my build? - Forum What happens if there is too much wattage on a PSU? - Forum What do you think about Thermaltake Smart SE 630W PSU? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
