My System Specs

Default Corsair HX1000W


I was just wondering if the Corsair HX1000W is able to power 3 GTX 285's ( factory overclocked editions) along with an OC Core I7 920 at somewhere around 3.8ghz, a Thermalright 120 extreme, and only 1 harddrive (at the moment...)

Im 99.9% positive it can handle all that above with only 2 cards but wondering if the 3rd may signify me having to get a different PSU

It should be fine. But I'd look for the Enermax Revolution 950W or 1050W instead of the HX1000 now that the prices have evened out.
Intel Core i7 930 D0 4.2ghz, Corsair XMS3 6X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 8-8-8-24, Xfire HD5870, Intel X-25M 34nm 80gb, Enermax Revolution85+ 1050W, Xonar D2X

E8400 4.0ghz, XFX 780i, Mushkin XP2 PC-6400, Antec Earthwatts 750W

It will have no issue running that setup at all.
