Titan X Hybrid Requirements?

So I know a friend who has managed to get a GTX 980Ti hybrid cooler onto his Titan X (Maxwell) and is willing to let it go for quite a nice price. My question is, what kind of power draw would I be looking at? PCPartPicker shows that with my entire rig, I'll be using ≈ 420W or so at full load.

Would it be safe to run it on a 500W Power Supply?

I know it's not recommended, but if I can manage to snag it, then I will upgrade to a Tier One power supply, as recommended online.

Thanks in advance.

Yup will be fine. 400-450 watts would be when stress testing on X99 overclocked CPU. If your using z170 (mainstream) etc you will use a fair bit less then that, 350-375 watts or so under normal load.

I hope the price is better by a bit then a GTX 1070, otherwise I would grab the GTX 1070 which with a solid aftermarket cooler will perform similarly, but use less power and you get the benefit of a new warranty.

My friend has put it on ebay, still going for $300.

That has set me out of its price range, though. Still, its incredible what deals you can find on there. Im picking up an R9 290 (enough for my needs) for $120
