    I've been running a "pc power and cooling" power supply for years, they make awesome power supplies.

    I don't mean to be rude, but why the...? Please don't tell me you just saw the Newegg 4 way titan video and just decided to replicate it... Because it's completely OVERKILL even if you're running Nvidia surround across all 4 screens its not needed. Not to mention the headaches with running 4 way SLI. Half the games at the moment don't even scale well with 4 way SLI. But enough about that... If you really do have a 4 way titan setup then you need a massive PSU because at max loads that setup could draw more than 1400W. But I do have 2 recommendations.



    1: Corsair AX1500i 1500W
    2. Rosewill Hercules-1600 1600W (I have heard good things about this PSU however I am not a huge fan of Rosewill PSUs)

    As far as what brands I trust and stick with:
    1. SeaSonic
    2. Corsair
    3. XFX (I think this is a branch off from SeaSonic because I think they use Seasonic's topologies not 100% sure on that.)
    4. Thermaltake
    5. Cooler Master
    6. Rosewill

    For a setup like this I wouldn't go with anything lower than 1300W and remember don't cheap out on a PSU make sure to get a well built one because the last thing you want is to fry $1500+ in PC hardware. In my eyes you're insane for having this setup but I digress.

    I think that's a good choice. I've never had an issue with Corsair and they build their products with a lot of care and act as if they're making it for their own family. Right now I have a CX750M and it hasn't even hinted towards any wear and tear.

    Here's an interesting video review of it :)

    48 minutes of looking at a powersupply (well, talking testing and running two r9 295x on it)

    I second that, I have only ever used seasonic never had any problems with that brand great quality with the modeler psu, i ran a 450 seasonic on my old rig for 2 years over clocked cpu, gpu and 2 closed loop cooler and tons of fans no hickups. and my friend swears by corsair

    I have a Kingwin Mach 1 1000watt. Been a very good and solid PSU, I'd recommend it. The beauty about the cards today is that they're more power efficient than the 295's and lower so they can be run on slightly lower wattage PSUs. But with 4 Titans I'd at least have a 1000watt so everything gets sufficient power and you have some breathing room.

    Seasonic is the best! XFX does use seasonic guts but not guarenteed for all models. If those are not available then antec and corsair are reliable.

    Yeah I thought they used Seasonic guts just wasn't 100% sure. Good to hear I was right.
