    Power supply question for an overclocked Intel i7-3930k

    Pulse-Art

      Howdy,

       

      I am building a new workstation to go with Production Premiun CS6, here are the specs:

       

      Intel i7 3930k

      Asus Sabertooth X79

      Corsair Hydro Series H80 liquid cooling

      Corsair 32GB Dominator DDR3 (4x8GB)

      1x WD 1TB SATA3 system drive

      1x Sandisk Extreme 120GB SSD (using SSD caching for system drive)

      2x WD 1TB SATA3 media drive (Raid 0 config)

      Nvidia GTX 560Ti

      LG internal Blu-ray

       

      I'm planning on using the auto-cloak feature on the Asus mobo. I've ordered a Corsair AX850 PSU for the new rig. I'm wondering if I should be using my 4year-old Antec Truepower Quattro 1KW instead so I have more head-room; the PSU is working flawlessly and I dust the equipment regularly, the Antec had excellent reviews when it came out.

      Anyone with a similar rig?

       

      Thank you for your time!
