Being that your an adventurist, if u have a spare psu around the house (like an old 350-400w sparkle or like that) you could run the hdds, dvd and fans off it and free up some amps. Basically you stick a paper clip in the 24pin plug(do a search to know which pins to bridge exactly) tape it up and use the switch at the back to power on/off, obviously power on before starting the stealth which powers the mobo,cpu and vid card.
I've had to do this when I've run short of amps with 500w blue. Do it at your own risk though. Good luck either way.
