Hey peeps,
Im a OC'er and a Folder... if ya couldnt tell ;-P

Need some advice from you smart electron guys... What specific PSU would a Folder use on an EVGA Classified Quad board, with intent to overclock the i7 920 to 4.2 and Shader Overclocks only on the 4x GTX285s??? keep in mind, a rig like this would be running FULL boar for 6 days straight (abouts) with only a day of down time for maintenence tasks then rinse and repeat... I see pleanty of SLI ready PSUs but i am sure there is not enough connectors for x4 cards... unless i am wrong and i would just have to use Nvidias supplied 12v 4pin adaptors for the last 1-2 cards.

I was thinking a 1000W Corsair HX or a Coolmax 1350W... thoughts?

you can set up this crap for folding but you can't use the proper grammar?

Shame on you Steve :D

now fix my folding stuff for me :D and if you build that rig before I can build mine I'm going to cry :D
