Default Re: 2x GTX 570 SLI + Antec 650 PSU - testing

idle GPU temps are 46... 7-9 degrees higher than with one card.

So how long before I blow a cap?
Don't you have a Kill o watt(sp?)?

I can't give you a direct comparison, but my 480 based rig reads (pc only, no peripherals) 452w while running furmark at stock speeds....yeah, I'd love to see how close you're cutting it.
