You need a power supply For testing conducted for SLI 670, the resulting system consumption for SLI is 433W of which 293W are attributed to the gpu cards.

If you use this psu calculator considering your components, the result is 664W (overclocked processor & used 680x2 to simulate gpu OC:

All points out to 750W being more than enough.

Doh! Of course, a power supply. Thanks for giving me the value.

Sounds like a solid build but what I regretted when I've built mine was not immediately going custom water-cooling. My i-2500k was @ 4.5 GHz prime95'd for 24h but my CM hyper 212+ was so noisy I couldn't stand it. I'm sure water cooling would definitely benefit your SLI GPUs cause them shits gon be noisy, boy!

It's very simple to do a waterconfig. youtube videos are more than helpful. just some food for thought. goodluck with your build.
