    Default Powering 2 GPU's

    Tell me. With all the new power supplies available today for a computer that plug into the power supply itself not like the older one that had leads coming out of a hole on the power supply itself can you get a Power Supply that can do 2 GPU's because all I see is one heavy duty 850W power supply that has 2 x 8 Pin sockets marked as PCI-E (6x2 Pin) and they have the connectors quality which is 4 or am I missing something. Have a look at the specs.

    1st, whats gpu's, so you know how much power you need
    then unless you want modular, you can save 100
    even 5yr warranty
    why do we need the NBN ? because the copper network is constipated & needs fibre

    two 1080ti.
    Not sure of the final configuration. (Tomorrow I'm buying a larger case). I have one 1080ti (old box has a GTX 980) and I can buy another 1080ti waiting but lets see if running in SLI can make a difference. I also have a option 1080 not ti I can get my hand on it + a another 1080. When It come to power on the Supply itself its best to have a reliable supply and a over rated one too and at the same time It mast stay cool, even water cooled.. I'm not playing games nor Mining.
    My question was the power itself, Can you get a Power supply that has 2 supplies coming out of the box for two GPU's not like most that have 2 sockets for one GPU's

    I like the idea of your Toughpower Mr 672A It looks like your first one should do what you are looking for.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    I have done it already but it took over 24 hrs. Testing I could bring down at little. Funny thing is using 2080ti runs slower that the 1080ti.

    Well put it this way This cannot be discussed on a Public Forum. I bet there are a few on this site that know what I'm talking about but wont discuss about it and that's good and will do it by myself.

    I thinking of a Water Cooler on my new Case (got it today) for my i7 but some have told me your wasting my moneys as you are not overclocking the CPU. Hummmm Me thinks I need to test again and keep a eye on the CPU and the GPU temps on my GPU-Z proggy
