To quickly and sloppily disable OCP limits on the rails.

So it was just a firmware artificial limit?

How will you handle the fact that you need to record the PSU as an open-frame? Fan(s) blowing from the side(s)? Quickly lifting the lid up and shooting...

Looking around, you can't find anything better for $170... in Platinum.

Dropping down to Gold does open up a world of possibilities, though. Not least of...

It's fine the way it is, functionality-wise. It's not like the connector is gonna fall out, well, at least if you don't tug on it.

You could perhaps heat up the motherboard-side connector with a...

I myself prefer a more sleek look, and for the cost of the 780T would probably go with either Enthoo Luxe (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811854006) or the H630...

The 1kW EVGA G2 is a bit overkill, but if you wanna supersize for whatever reason, it has some great value.

The 750W G2 is more than enough power even for 970 OC SLI. Amazon...

That's a pretty good post: Specific question and clear emphasis on your wants and needs, you even told us the intended budget.

The (HX) versions have CapXons instead of NCCs. The layout is exactly the same. Gold efficiency and stable, low-ripple platform should mean those CapXons won't be under too much stress, so it should...

In a machine that will barely pull 50-60W under full load, any of the PSUs from the list should last 5+ years without trouble (provided they're properly cleaned/dusted at least once a year).

Recipe for success.
