    oh sorry for that i mean is it good quiet will do the job for the gpu?
  3. You need 24A on the 12V rail for the 270X and 500W in total for the pc.

    The Thermaltake 530W SE is not certified or recommended. Instead, I'd recommend an Antec HCG 520M
  4. That PSU has a lot of issues, I would suggest getting a bigger PSU 600/650W since the min sys req is around 500W and in the future you may want to make some upgrades to your overall system.

    Sorry for digging up, but please, tell me more. Why this PSU isn't recommended (for 270X or generally speaking?) and what are the issues? This is a very popular power supply in my country, people recommend it even for GTX 770.
  9. 1. Its recommended to use a 600W power supply for a gtx770

    2. RealHardTech test power supplies. They recommend at l;east 500W for the R9 270x.

    3. The Thjermaltake Smart SE power supplies are not on tiers 1,2a, 2b or even 3 or 4 of http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html#13224310. So thye are not a good quality power supplies.

    4. You can find Thermaltake Smart power supplies in the Johnny Lucky Lemon list - http://www.johnnylucky.org/power-supplies/psu-lemon-list.html

    5. ReadHardTech says the power supply has not yet been certified to 80plus and there are no reviews on them
  10. Thanks. I will keep my eyes on the subject and looking for more reviews.
