    I've used some voltage calculators with varying results, so I wanted to run it by you guys. I have a Corsair AX1200i laying around but I think I may push it a bit. System specs below:

    System 1:
    i7-7820x 4.6ghz@1.25
    X299-e Strix Mobo
    32gb Ram
    GTX-1060
    USB 3.0 used
    2xD5 Pumps
    13 Fans
    1xM.2 Storage
    1xSSD

    System 2:
    i9-9700k 5ghz @ 1.35
    Z390-i Mini Itx
    16gb Ram
    1xM.2 storage
    Zotac Amp 2080ti

    I would also be using the phantek dual system splitter. Let me know what you think.

    Not sure which calculators you've been using, but I'm a big fan of the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator:

    Very granular. Allows for overclocked CPU/GPU power estimations.
    Otherwise, seems like a pretty awesome system if you've got the money to blow.

    I would say with complete confidence that an 1100w PSU is fine for both of those machines, even with a moderate CPU overclock on both. PSU's are grossly oversized to machines any more.
