If you're doing SLI I would recommend going overkill on the PSU so that it runs cool. When you push a PSU it's simple: the fan gets turned on/up more. And the sleeving doesn't have the annoying multicolour look at the terminals.

But if you don't care about the multicolour terminals go with the seasonic, they're bulletproof!
I am considering just 1000W since I will never go 3-SLI. And no, I don't case for if it's multicoloured or not as long as it performs and lasts a long time.

1000w will do tri-sli but for the reasons above I would aim higher but for dual-cards then 850 - 1000w is perfect.

Looking at the AX 860 myself for dual 780's on an i7 950, which sucks allot more power than your 3570k.

Also little to no heatshrink versus 2 inches. But is is also a lot of work to sleeve a power supply properly. Expect to spend 20-30 hours at the minimum to do the entire system.
Actually, overclocking everything causes a system to pull a lot of power. I will post some reviews later that showed how much power a 3930/3960 with 2-way SLI pulls. Close to 800 watts. So I like pushing my stuff harder, meaning a better PSU around 1000 Watts is needed when I step up to Extreme platform.

I can put the hrs but I am not sure what the costs are and how much stuff to order. So I will look around for stuff that are pre-sleeved. I would love to put time behind sleeving but maybe in December. Do you know any shop other than Dazmode and modDIY | PC Modding, Case Mods, Modular Cables, PC Mod Supplies I would like a black and red colour patern to go with my system colours.
