Hey everyone!

I Have recently decided to water cool my PC with a custom loop. I've been doing some research and have decided on the components.

The problem I am having is figuring out how much power I will need to power my PC. I have an 850W XFX (seasonic) PSU.

I have tried looking around and kind find anything telling me how many watts I should be looking to power all of this :??:  .
I will be upgrading my graphics card to an EVGA Titan hydro and my cpu to an Intel Ivy Bridge-E processor whenever that comes out.

If there is an existing thread feel free to direct me to it :) 

Thanks!

When you think about it, as long as you have enough power for ur whole system and more, you should be okay

so 850w is acceptable? or should I step up to 1250?

1250 is overkill for a watercooling unit. I think 850 will be enough
Plus the pump should take that much power

Hi - 850w quality PSU is more than sufficient for a GTX Titan card.
It can run on less than 600w without the h2o cooling. Evev if the cooling
were to use 50 watts, you'd still have way more power than you need.
