My System Specs

Default Will a Corsair TX650M handle the following?

Will a Corsair TX650M handle the following?

Main hardware:
- Intel Core i5-3570K at 5GHz (although it will be less, assume the power consumption of an Intel Core i5-2500K at 5GHz)
- DUAL AMD Radeon HD7850 2GB at 1GHz for the core

Other little stuff:
- 8GB (2X4GB) of Corsair Vengeance LP (1600MHz 1.5V 9-9-9-24)
- ASUS P8Z77-V (I hope that the 8+4+2 of this motherboard will handle 5GHz)
- Intel 520 SSD and a 1TB Seagate Barracuda
- Corsair H100

I know that even if it works, it may be tight... But I personally think it's alright.
What do you guys say about a TX650M pulling this setup?
I know it will be fine at stock, but I'm curious about the overclocks. Thanks!

Take a look at this review: AMD Radeon HD 7870 & HD 7850 Review
At load 1 7850 is consuming 247W, I believe SKY was using a 2500K in that benchmark, if ivy is anything like sandybridge when it comes to power consumption you'll do just fine with 2 in crossfire on a TX650M.

Ivy is supposed to draw less power then Sandy by a bit, so yah that will be fine.

I would say it will be good to go with dual 7850 and the setup as you listed.
