I plan to purchase a Cooler Master Silent Pro 1000w modular power supply (

I'm not very technical with computer components, but this power supply is SLI ready. However, I plan to purchase an ATI Radeon HD 6950. Will crossfire work with this power supply? Someone told me the pins are different and it may not work?

Also, this power supply will work for a i5-2600k cpu?

Thanks for the help!

1000 w more than enough for Xfire radeon 6950, and cm silent pro 1000 is good psu.

You really don't need 1000w, that's more than enough, but 750 would be just right, and cost less. However, if you want to stay with 1000w, the cm silent pro is awesome, my friend owns one and it is a beast.

well the CM 1000w is on sale today for $99 dollars. I doubt you can beat that price for such a high quality for a power supply (based on several reviews I have read) the 750w is $8 bucks cheaper......i rather spend 8 more dollars to help future proof future upgrades :)

but can anyone answer my questions in regards to being compatible with a Intel motherboard with a i5-2600k cpu?

Has 6 x 6+2pin and 1 x 6+2pin Y-splitter power connections, more than enough for XF or SLI GPU's.
