Hello fellow pc enthusiasts. I recently saved up enough side or spare cash to build an editing and gaming rig. My system would include the following -i7 5820k, maybe overclock to 3.7-4.2 ghz, depending on how well I do in the chip lottery -dual gtx 980 ti Strix cards, might overclock from 1.22 ghz to 1.35-1.4ghz, again depending on luck -16gb ddr4 2400 And a few other accessories like a cd and blu Ray drive So, my question is this. What sort of power draw would I be able to expect when this system is under load? Or overclocked? I've heard that pcpartpicker doesn't always take things into account that it should, like maxwell cards and their weird power consumption. I don't know if I'll overclock the 980 tis. Probably not, they're already beastly enough, but you never know. If you need any other details, let me know. I'll provide the link to the build if needed. Hope to see some responses, I hear the community on this site is pretty good. Thanks in advance.
