This is the worst video with absolutely no proof and picture at the end is not a reference card , no explanation of what was used to Power 980ti !

There's really no proof in the video besides the title.

I personally don't think it's possible. I had a power meter attached to the wall when I had a 980 in my x51 and it would get up to 280-300 watts of total system usage.

The 980 had a tdp of 165w, the 980ti has a tdp of 250w. Unless a second psu is added to drive the gpu, the 330w just isn't enough to drive a 250w card along with the rest of the system. People were having problems with the 680 back in the day and that had a tdp of 195w.

If you want more power than a 980, you'll have to move the guts to a new case with a bigger psu, or build a new computer, which I did at the beginning of the year when I got my Titan X.

actually the gtx 980 gets up to 195w stressed and the Ti went up to 230w it didnt reach the 250w tdp so in theory its possible cause the I7 setup + GTX 980 ti will consume around 300-340w so it might be in the power envelop of the 330w psu how ever I think setting the power limit of the GTX 980 ti to 99% might make it work without a problem but overclocking might not be an opition here , I might purchase one in my next salary payment that 35 days away so lets hope it will work or I will just swap all my components into a raven rvz01 or Asrock m8 barebone.
or will see if the upcoming AMD r9 fury nano will be able to achieve colocks around 1ghz on core overclocked i would bite a bullet and get one .

Wait for PASCAL's next year , More efficient and a lot more powerful. Running +177Core on a 980 and ran Performance Test"passmark" shaved off a little over 200 points of my 4770 from 1330 to 1100 , to my understanding 980 grabbing all the power, but i might be wrong.

what is your TDP @ +177 core on the gtx 980?
cause if you check this
http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/nvidia-geforce-gtx-980-ti-review,8.html
you can see the full system stressed with the i7 5960x clocked @ 4.4 + GTX 980 ti and the rest of the system consumed about 332w from the wall if we considerd that out non overclockable CPUs consume average of 80w compared to the 140w or more of the eight core i7x we might get away with that setup.
anyway I will post again next month after I upgrade from GTX 970 to the 980 Ti.

This is what i got after 30 min GTAV and Firestrike ExtremeGTX980STRESSED.png GTX980STRESSED2.png

Don't forget that your 330w psu will deteriorate over time and may not deliver 330w as designed.
