There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

You should test barebone-systems with all those high-load cards first before you go all high-investment into watercooling and other fancy things just to make sure your apartments can support it without blowing fuses, if you're worried about that.

I'd hate to see you spend all that money and time setting up waterblocks, tubing, getting it all nice and neat into the case, wire management, etc and having something not work right.

With all that said, do post pics of the final setup =)

Sorry you're right, I wasn't paying attention to exactly what he was trying to run; I was on auto-pilot posting that after reading so many threads where people were asking what PSU to buy for their dedicated miners with 1-3 GPU's in each box.  That link also has interesting graphs of efficiency vs load which will tell you how much to overshoot your power requirements by when picking a PSU.

Corsair AX series is excellent. AX1200 is the top model I think

I have FSP Aurum in 2x5870 rig and Enermax Modu87+ in 2x6970 rig. Enermax is best - very efficient, quiet, stable but high-priced.
