is the 1050HX good for runing 7970 at 2 way xfire with leds and water cooling in the case and my core i5 is at 5ghz so just asking if i need a upgrade or im going to be fine with OCing headroom coz i wana bumb the first card to 1ghz and run them in water L8ter
BTW my case is lvl 10 gt and Voltage for the cpu is at 1.45
The Radeon HD 7970 has similar gaming power consumption to the Radeon HD 6970:
Radeon HD 7970 Typical Gaming Power: 189 Watts
Radeon HD 7970 Maximum Card Power (Furmark): 270 Watts
Radeon HD 6970 Typical Gaming Power: 185 Watts
Radeon HD 6970 Maximum Card Power (Furmark): 287 Watts
For a system using two Radeon HD 6970 graphics cards in 2-way CrossFireX mode AMD specifies a minimum of an 800 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 63 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin and two 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.
The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 (CMPSU-1050HX), with its +12 Volt continuous current rating of 87.5 Amps and six (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, will be more than sufficient to power your system with two Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards in 2-way CrossFireX mode and plenty of reserve capacity for any overclocking of the CPU and GPUs you may want to perform.
