Hello, i got a big bang marshal mobo with dual gtx580's at the moment! i7 2600k is the cpu with dom GTs and an ocz z1000watt power supply.

What i want to know are 2 things.

1> Can ocz power 4 x gtx580s?

2> Will this mobo give me performance by using 4 x gtx580s , is it compatible etc etc due to chipset limitations!

I cant change the mobo.

1) not sure but even with dual 580 people are recommending to use at least 850w PSU.

2) i don't think there is mobo limitation on how much gpu you want to use. but why did you need 4 GTX580 in the first place? is it for compute specific task? or simply for gaming?

You never specified which motherboard you mean..? A motherboard will say whether it supports quad-GPUs. You'll probably have to refer to the manufacturers website of the motherboard where it will tell you.

Measured power consumption one card

System in IDLE = 155W
System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 378W
Difference (GPU load) = 223W
Add average IDLE wattage ~ 25W
Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 248W

so 248*4=992 watts right there.

then there is the question of having EIGHT 8 pin PCI power connections.
