    Corsair AX1200 PSU: Can it cut it?

    Okay so I am currently building a machine powered by the Corsair AX1200 PSU (1200 Watts).

    I am somewhat questioning weather I can add internal water cooling or if I should just go external just in case.

    I will be running 3 EVGA GTX 580's in SLI, Gigabyte G1 Assassin Mobo, i7 990X and 24GB of Corsair vengeance DDR3 2000 Ram (Six 4 GB Sticks) with a HAF X case.

    Does anyone think I will have the juice to add a pump and enough fans to do a push/pull on two radiators?

    Derp, it say's I should have a 1450 watt PSU. lol

    The main thing that scares me about the PSU I have is it only has 1 12V rail, if I overload it... things could get dicey..
