Quad sli PSU's??
I see alot of them advertised. however, when I look at the specs they list 3) 6 pin and 3) 8, or 6+2 pin pci-e connectors. this will not run 4 video cards that take one of each connector. so what PSU's do actually have the needed 8 pci-e connectors? preferably 80+ certified. modular is also a plus but not a requirement.The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

most newer psu's all use a 6+2 configuration. that you are going to have to look at each and every PSU you want and see if it has at least 8 6+2 PCI-E connectors.
here is one with a lot of connectors HERE

I only need 8, that has 15. and the price is a bit steep for me. I'm hoping to find something around $150 or less. i've seen several in that range that claim quad but only have 6 connectors...
what do you think of this?
I've had a true power 550 for a couple years that still works fine (replaced it with the one in my sig)The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

over at geforce.com there is a list of PSU certified for different sli config: http://www.geforce.com/#/Hardware/PowerSupplies
it's a good place to start checking.Main System

Or how about running two PSU's in one case?

thanks for that link tho' i'll keep that in mind. I wonder if having the 6 pins on one psu and the 8's on the other would cause a problem. my luck it would melt the system case and all....
