HX1200I OR AX1200I

Running two GALAX 980 Ti HoF Edition and I have couple ssd and hdd.. 5820K cpu with some 8-9 fans and basic OC on Ram, gpu and cpu.

Just need to see if 1200w is enough. Gpu requires 600w and bring 400w on load.

I want the Snow Silent 1050w psu to match the white 980's.

If 1200 is overkill then I can get the SS.

Plz Help .

This build can run 4K ..which is one purpose. And productivity.

You should be able to get by with a high efficiency 1000 watt psu with that configuration. Even OC'd I don't think the 980ti will go much north of 300 watts, and the 5820k shouldn't break 200 watts. Just ballparking here from what I vaguely remember from benchmarks, but you'll be good to go.

1000w is more then enough here. 1200w is pointless.

Honestly even 850w would be fine.

Well I don't know about pointless, you might see more efficiency with a smaller relative load on a more powerful psu, shrug

But yeah, I'm basically saying that 1000 watts is fine. I think we're in agreement here.
