2 7850S CORSAIR CX600 V2

just wonderin if i can run 2 7850s on my psu
i do not know much about psus but i think i might no enought because one rail is 480 watts and i think thats for the gpu cpu motherboard while on another rail there i think there is around 100 watss for the hdds fans and the molex plugs and a adittional 10 watss for i dont no

so if im right and using this link from guru 3d http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-radeon-hd-7850-and-7870-review/7
the 7850 only draws 274 in full load so i think adding another card whill takee at the maximum 130 watss soo
247 plus 130 = 404 so i will have 80 watss to spare

so would i be safe and thanks in advance and sorry for the bad spelling im trying to learn ow to spell really fast

  1. I wouldn't want to try since that's cutting it real close. Maybe even too close for comfort. U can try and see if it works fine but i'll be hesitant myself. If you can afford it, get a quality 750w psu from corsair, xfx, seasonic, or antec and relegate the cx600v2 as backup or to a spare.

    wow i did not no 80 watts is to close
  3. If the power consumption is more than 80% of the stated output of the psu... than yah i consider that 'close'

    But it doesn't hurt to try! Just don't try to any insane overclocks.
  4. For a system using two Radeon HD 7850 graphics cards in 2-way CrossFireX mode AMD specifies a minimum of a 600 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 32 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important factor.

    The Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 (CMPSU-600CXV2), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 40 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with two Radeon HD 7850 in 2-way CrossFire mode.

    nah i dont overclock its to scary maybe when im older and also the test bech form the guru 3d was this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=19-116-491&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2

    while my intel i3 2120 only gets to 65 wats max while the one used in the testbench was 130 so does that help at all also i no there will be some botlenecking either way im sure it would give me plus 50 fps on ultra in battlefield 3
