My System Specs

Default Corsair HX1000W

Hey,

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.

It will have no issue running that setup at all.
