The maximum Arcane Power for a Wizard is 185.

The base Arcane Power is 100. You can get 20 Arcane Power from each of Astral Presence (a passive skill) and Energy Armor with the Energy Tap rune, so +40 from skills giving us 140. Finally, you can get up to 15 Arcane Power (a perfect Mental affix) on each of an Orb, Wand and Wizard Hat, so another +45 for 185 in total.

@JimThio, just one, but you get +20 from Astral Presence and from Energy Armor with the Energy Tap rune. – Ilya Melamed Jun 19 '12 at 7:12
