AX760i + 7980xe + 2080ti

Hi All,

Just picked up a MEG Creation X299 board, gonna throw on a delidded 7980xe and it will run alongside a 2080ti aorous extreme.

Will also be using 4 nvme's, 3ssd's & 1x5TB mechanical

Would like to run the CPU @4.5 , its got a caseking stamp on the IHS and has been validated for 4.5 @1.2v.

Will the AX760i be able to handle all this or will I be right on the limit ? If not what do you think a safe overclock will be untill I manage to upgrade to a new PSU at the end of this month ?

Almost forgot, the case will also have 12 fans.

From what I could see from a power supply calculator that system needs a 1000 watt power supply so I wouldn't overclock at all till you get the new one

Thanks, was thinking pretty much the same. There is a SeaSonic Prime Gold 1300W on local ads here for 150e. Might pick it up tonight but only has 2 cpu 8 pins where motherboard has 3 x CPU 8 pin, not sure if this matters ?

Not sure about that one buddy hopefully someone else on here can answer that one for you but a Seasonic 1300 is bound to be a great PSU otherwise

You should not need 3 8pin cpu power at all with that, unless you were like heavily overclocking an 18 core on LN2, the Evga x299 Dark is one of the best boards for LN2 overclocking and it only has 2 8 pins so yeah, no need to worry if you just doing some ambient cooling overclocks.

Yeah 760 not enough.

EVGA do good high powered PSUs that are usually cheaper than the rest. That said it doesn't sound like you're pinching pennies hehe.

Just spotted something, look at the fittings on the photo below , both of them will never in a million years fit on the EK Block !! Any ideas how to get around this ? Both blocks are G1/4 threads :
