Is this enough for my system?

Hi, I recently bought ryzen and planning to bulid a beast. But I am not sure if my psu would be enough for this beast. I WILL overclock both the CPU and the video card.

CPU: Ryzen 7 1700x @4.0GHZ @1.4V
Motherboard: Msi x370 gaming plus
Video card: 2 Gtx 1080ti
Monitor: Asus 2560*1440 27inch
Drivers: two 72k rpm 1TB hard drive and one 250GB SSD
PSU: Corsair RX 850W 80+ Gold
Cooler: corsair water cooling h100i

So this is my bulid, but not sure if 850w gold is enough for two 1080ti's and an overclock 1700x

  2. Even heavily overclocked, I doubt these components would ever draw over 600 watts from the PSU. A good 850 watt PSU should have more than enough headroom to spare.

    Really? Are you sure TWO gtx 1080tis barely use 600W?

  4. Yeah I love the mobo because of its black red color, that is exactly what I want my computer to be,(black and red led all the time). I am getting corsair 400c as my case

    Yeah, I apparently skimmed over that part. You mentioned "the video card" in the first paragraph, so I wasn't expecting two. In that case, it could get a lot closer to the limits of that PSU under full CPU/GPU load with overclocking.

    Yeah I forgot the plural there, sorry for my bad English lol. Anyway it is good to hear 850W 80+ gold is enough because I don't want my electric bill becomes a beast

  8. Yes it is only $240, but I don't like the color. I saw that chart you gave me and it recommended 850w as power supply. Thx
