Re: EVGA X99 Classified EPS 8 pin
As I understand it, a single EPS12V CPU connection can provide up to 188 watts of power (please correct me if I'm wrong).
My overclocked 6950X at 4.4GHz and 1.363V is pulling around 220W of power as shown in HWMonitor in Cinebench R15. I had a 1660V3 (Xeon equivalent of a 5960X) prior to this and if I remember correctly it didn't get much past 165W at 4.3GHz and 1.35V. Granted, that's a software reading and not a direct measurement.
You're likely fine unless you are putting your 5960X under LN2 and doing some extreme overclocking, or are looking to overclock a 6950X.
