How Much PSU Wattage Do I need To Run This PC?

Hi Everyone,
I'm building a new pc with dual loop water cooling but I'm not sure how much power it draws from the wall. I decided to go with the EVGA Supernova 1600 T2 But Since I didn't had really an Idea ; So I decided to ask you guys about it.
Intel Core i7- 8700K (Overclocked To 5.8GHZ)
MSI Z370 Godlike gaming (Mono Block Watercooled)
2 * G.Skill Trident Z 4000 32 (2*16) CL19 (Watercooled)
2 * MSI Geforce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio (Fullcover Watercooled)
2 * Samsung 960 Pro 2TB (RAID 0)
24 * XSPC RGB Series 120mm Fan
4 * Seagate Hybrid 4TB+8GB (Non RAID)
2 * EK Coolstream XE 480 (Quad 120mm Push/Pull)
2 * XTOP REVO D5 RGB
2 * XSPC D5 Photon 270 Reservoir/ Pump Combo
3 * XSPC 8 Way, 3Pin, 5V, Addressable RGB Splitter Hub
5 * 60cm Addressable RGB Lighting Strips
1 * Corsair ML140mm RGB Fan
3 * CD/DVD COMBO
Corsair Obsidian Series 900D
I'd be Happy to have your Ideas About The PSU Options.
Thanks.

  1. 5.8ghz?

    that's a bit high and probably not suitable for daily use.

    if you meant 4.8 or 5.0 ghz.

    in terms of option, i think 1000w should be fine for normal use, as for extreme overclocking you would need the 1600w.
  2. 5.8 GHz OC? You've actually done this, or is that just wishful thinking?

    2x 960 Pro in RAID 0? Why would you slow down the drives like that? http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/samsung-950-pro-256gb-raid-report,4449.html

    3x DVD drives? Why?

    24x fans? Why?
  3. If your also overvolting the 1080 Tis to the max, then I'd stay safe and go 1200W.

    But yeah 5.8GHz? Probably last a year before it dies for the voltage 5.8ghz requires.
  4. Ok if noone else is going to call it I will.

    This system doesn't and will never exist. 5.8ghz on an 8700k? Yeah if you cool the system with Dry ice. 24 fans, 3 dvd drives, etc. If you really had the knowledge to build such a system you wouldn't be questioning us on your PSU choice.

    This is a troll post and a waste of time. Prove me wrong and I may consider not deleting it.
  5. I am not trolling but thought that 8 is a typo :)
  6. Pics or it didn't happen.

    Seriously 1 DVD drive is too many these days! :lol:
  8. OP could be authoring 3 BD's at a time. I have two for the very same reason.
