My first Generation Corsair AX 1200 has been great for the past few yrs...running Procyon II in my Specs :)

Good luck!!

God knows what else in the next few years. with a 10 year warranty i'll hopefully have this for awhile and since its the max you can pull from a household outlet I can't see any reason to upgrade later.

I think your current PSU will be sufficient.

To the OP, you're certainly on the right track , I know I wouldn't trust a 750 W "M Series" with what you're saying you want to push as far as HW, better to be on the safe side with that kind of System than battling PSU issues in the future ;)

CPU @ 5 Ghz
7970 XF
2 pumps and a min 14 fans
I wouldn't feel comfortable with anything less than a AX 860i.

I wouldn't say anything less than an 860i but a very solid 850W+ would be where my money would be. (have a 1000w platinum when I was looking for 850w gold cos it was on sale for nearly the same price :D)

^^^^ Bottomline with that kind of a Hardware set up why fvck around and go as cheap as "you think you can get away with", that's just plain foolish!!

I re-read the OP's Post and 2x480 +1x240 rads in push /pull is 20 fans alone on the Rads, along with a bunch if Case Fans, likely all running off of a high end Fan Controller, couple of 7970 XF, OC'd CPU to 5 Ghx, 32 GB RAM,,,,,,yeah personally I like his choice of going to a 1.2 kW,
yeah yeah, "according to this or that he'll be fine with a good 750 -850w yada yada yada", but again why cheap out on a PSU, spend an extra $150 and he's golden for a very long time.....he'll swap out the 2x 7970's for 3 780's and he still just fine.....
......this is one component in your Rig you CAN future proof, so go for it ;)

Three GTX780s would likely run fine on an 800W PSU. These days 1kW+ PSUs just aren't needed. All his fans and watercooling stuff combined likely will use less than 25W.

I would have said closer to 75w for the fans and pumps (depending on models) and on a 2500k@5ghz and gpu's on top of this... if he has full system load often or for extended periods then no for 3 cards but yes for 2... 850gold or higher IMO.. not till you go for tri or quad cards will you need more than that.

Actually thinking about it the AX 860 (or i) would be perfect fit for you if a bit pricey.
