My System Specs

1200w won't do it, to run 4-way using 480's with a 4.0+ OC you will need either a Silverstone Strider ST1500w or a combination of a 1000w and 650/750w. After reading a few threads over at EVGA it looks like 4-way isn't worth it just yet, more work on the drivers might make it worth while down the road though.

right, Trubritar's rig was running 980x 4.4Ghz with Tri-SLI GTX480. It's already consuming a peak of
1100-ish from the wall.

I'd like to have seen a measure of the ambient room temperatures as well from idle to after 30minutes of gaming/benching
