Default Choosing a 1000Wat PSU

I have Enermax Maxrevo 1500W ATX12V / EPS12V80 Plus Gold Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
Seasonic Platinum 1000 ATX 12V 24PIN 1000W Active PFC 80PLUS Platinum Modular DC to DC Power Supply
EVGA Supernova 1000 P2 1000W 80 Plus Platinum Modular Power Supply 10YRS Warranty

I will power Quad i7-3770k Triple GTX 680 + possibily one titan. I currently have a older PC Power and cooling 1000w not sure if it can do anything.

Well your 680's have a TDP of 195W each so let's say 600W for the lot of them. The i7 is 77W. Titan is like 265W. Are you planning on overvolting the i7?

If the titan wasn't involved I'd say go with the Seasonic. If you're planning on overclocking you may want to go with the Enermax.

Why are you going triple 680 + titan? That seems like a lotta GPU power if your just gaming?

Check out this site for reviews on power supplies. I believe he's reviewed all of them and is the de-facto standard when it comes to PSU's

lol, that would be my choice,


I bought the corsair rm1000 for more power and no noise, maybe you'll have enough hardware there to get the fan to spin up, mine never seems to come on at all.

A friend is running 4 vids in his system and is using 2 ps's I believe plus a big external aqua kit for all the vids, cpu idea (4 x 680's, one for physx ;)). Am unsure if one ps would do what your trying with 4 vids. Also remember he run a new power feed for his system double pull breaker and all. May have been overkill but look into it before grabbing the titan...
