    CPU is gonna pull like 130W at that clock, and it looks like the cards are similar at stock with 135W. We are at like 400W without GPU overclocks, I think you should be fine!

    +12v = 53 A (single rail)
    +3.3 v = 25 A
    +5v = 25 A

    Yes sir you are all set. As a matter if fact I think this will bring it to 70-80% of it normal load maximum and therefore it will run very efficient while the PC is under load.
