    Hei tanks
    The 850 seem good enough also for a high end dual gpu conf, maybe i can save some money and go for it instead of the 1000w unit :\

    A high-end 850W is enough for two GTX 1080 Ti's with some extreme overclocks on water or air cooling and a heavily overclocked high-end CPU.

    But for the new HX Platinum you don't really need a review. You can just look at the reviews of the RMi, RMx and HXi and look up the differences spec wise.

    RMx: doesn't have multiple Over Current Protections on the 12V, has a rifle bearing fan, no Corsair Link, uses cable caps for lower ripple and no relais for the NTC thermistor.
    RMi: does have multiple Over Current Protections on the 12V, has a FDB fan, has Corsair Link, uses cable caps for lower ripple and doesn't have a relais for the NTC thermistor.
    HX Platinum: does have multiple Over Current Protections on the 12V, has a FDB fan, doesn't have Corsair Link support, uses cable caps for lower ripple and does have a relais for the NTC thermistor.
    HXi: does have multiple Over Current Protections on the 12V, has a FDB fan, does have Corsair Link support, doesn't use cable caps for lower ripple and does have a relais for the NTC thermistor.

    Those are the differences.

    For dual 1080 (not ti) a 550W PSU is enough.

    Yes if you have enough PEG connectors and if you don't overclock are only do some small overclocks.

    But there are planty of tings you forget: many fans, a couple of hdd, a fan regulator, an AIO watercooling sistem and a decent overclock. Bring all that together and you will need a 1000w unit if you want to grant your psu a decent margin. I belive that if you need 700W on full load you should go 850, if you need 800 then 1000w unit and so on. Am i wrong?

    We have given thousands of people PSU advise here on jonnyGURU.com, this site is about power supplies. You really think we wouldn't knew how to calculate the power consumption of a PC?
