Solved Power consumption of Phenom II 955 Tags: Power Supplies Power Consumption Phenom Components Last response: August 12, 2010 1:12 AM in Components Share miha2 August 11, 2010 8:59:40 PM Hello everyone. Given the components: Phenom II 955 (oc'ed to 3.6) and, let's say, ATi's 5850. What's the proper Power Supply for this combo? Max fan would be Coolermaster V8. Or any other alternatives that are cheaper but better? More about : power consumption phenom 955 Timop a b ) Power supply August 11, 2010 9:09:37 PM An decent 400W would even do it, but if you want to crossfire that HD5850, go for a quality 650W. m 0 l Henry Chinaski a b ) Power supply August 11, 2010 10:40:06 PM I recommend you a quality 500W PSU with one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCIe connectors. If you are thinking about doing 5850CF with two cards, then go for a quality 600W PSU with two 8-pin and two 6-pin PCIe connectors. You can find very good options in the PSU Review Database (see my signature) m 0 l Related resources Phenom II 945 - Real CPU power consumption - Forum Phenom II x4 955 and Crossfire Power Supply? - Forum 2 year old 500w PSU enough to power a phenom ii 955 O.C. + 4890 ? - Forum Is FX-9370 worth upgrading Phenom II x4 955? - Forum Phenom ii x4 955 be overclocking (new to overclocking) - Forum Can't find your answer ?
