Just had a water cooling nightmare with a leek that went inside my Coolermaster 1100 ULTIMATE power supply. BANG BANG BANG, Yep thats dead!
Ok so I need to replace it.
I run 3 monitors (NOT running Surround) with GTX470SLi (will be upgraded to GTX670SLi when I place my order for my PSU), but due to the way the nVidia drivers work, If I run a full screen application on my middle screen the left and right monitors turn them selves off !!!! (GRRR), to get around this I have been using a 3rd GTS250 to run my left and right screens so they stay active when my middle screen is running any full screen game
I will be purchasing either the AX860i or AX1200i (Corsair), but I don't know if I NEED the 1200.
I will be overclocking - on AIR!!!!!!! (*** this water cooling *** =) the GTX670s and I run an I7-920 at 4.2GHz, I will also be replacing the GTS250 with a new GPU (one that exhausts air out the rear of the chassis - probably something like a GTS640) this card will NOT be overclocked.
Can I get away with the AX860i or will my power draw be to high ?
+12V@99.5A, more than the corsair, it's platinum have more watts, same price as the AX860i, it will not blow up lol.
I dont want to be offensive, but I have already stated in the OP that the ONLY 2 PSUs I'm considering are the Corsair AX860i and the Corsair AX1200i AND I have replyed to your XFX recomendation saying I was not intrested.
What I want to know and the ONLY thing I want to know,
Can I run SLI GTX670 OCd! + GT640 + i7-920 @ 4.2GHz on the AX860i or do I need to get the AX1200i ?
