    ....wait is that correct, u have 4 GTX 670s? if u quad sli, overclock, and a bunch of ssd u should be getting a good 80 plus 1200 watt
  2. o.o

    i have the feeling he will use it for gaming.
  3. i`ve no plan to overclock for a while like, its just for gaming i`ve had no troubles yet but it`s been in the back of my mind for a while now, i had a look at the AX1200i aswell and thought aw f**k it i`m only using 2 cards then sods law i added another 2 for fun, so go bigger then you think ?
  4. Is your rig stable?

    I would return the 1050 if u can and get a 1200. Just a little more breathing room for the pc. im in the US and using newegg to compare the ax1200i and the seasonic 1250. both are gold but the seasonic is cheaper by 50 bucks (250 vs 300). I like the seasonic for its realiability and the fact that all corsair psu are made by seasonic.
  6. i`ve just ordered the AX1200i off ebuyer, i knew i made a mistake when i bought this one just one o them things i did not expect to expand as fast as i did to be honest, i`ll fire this one on e bay its only a few weeks old shud cover some of the costs for the new one man

    Cheers for the help Guys
