Solved 850w enough for a 2600k & Crossfire build? Tags: Power Supplies Crossfire Build Components Product Last response: January 11, 2011 1:49 PM in Components Share RobotAngst January 11, 2011 8:32:45 AM 2600k moderately overclocked... 4.2 mhz or so. 2 crossfired 6950s flashed to 6970s. And the usual assortment of knobs and fans and a DVD drive and whatnot. I'm guessing it'll be a little tight at load (which I may never hit?), but the PSU is a Corsair 850HX, which jonnyguru seems to like. Think 850w will be enough or should I return it for a 1000w?

My guess is your system will use no more than ~650w. 850w will give you some stretching room. http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1488/18/ (This review used a Core i7 970, and your PSU ) Share Sequences January 11, 2011 11:41:56 AM 850W is enough, and you will have some extra space to do other things if you wish, like Raidur said. m 0 l Related resources is 850w enough for 280x crossfire? - Forum would an 850w 80plus bronze psu be enough for 280x crossfire - Forum 850W Enough for Crossfire r9-280x? - Forum 850w PSU enough for Crossfire 7950s? - Forum Is 850W enough for GTX570, 16GB PC2 17000, 240GB SATA 3 SSD, i7 2600k? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
