What's the hurry? What PSU are you using now? HD 7970 only needs a 650W PSU to be happy.
What case does the new 1000W PSU need to fit in?
Using 750w. nzxt phantom case comes tomarrow im gonna switch cases and current case only has 1 fan. By tomarrow i would be adding 100w of fans to power and i clueless what will happen once i even add the 7970 soon i have 2 hours to put in order so i have it when the case comes.
Included fans: 1 x LED 200mm 1 x LED 120mm 3 X 120mm
That's under 15watts worth of fans.
Five 20W per Channel fan control totaling 100W Four fans included with case (1x200mm, 3x120mm)
guess i just got thrown off cause it has a fan controller installed aswell
So adding this case and the 7970 will be ok with my 750w psu
1 x LED 200mm 5.04W 1 x LED 120mm ?? could not tell from the NZXT website 3 X 120mm 1.92W x 3
750W will be fine.
The controller will handle 100W (capability) - 20W on each of five channels. But it will only draw a small amount of power on it's own to light up the display. The rest of the load is determined by the fan wattages involved.
Sorry i'm an idiot that why im here very new to pc and cautious. I will be switching cases tomm and im pretty scared cause i will be doing it on my own and never done it before. I have a 120cc liquid cooled cpu cooler attached to my board and wires bundled up and my psu sits uptop and this case has on bottom. Looking forward to the learning process. Thanks for your time
Take your time and look over the layout till you have a clear understanding how everything needs to get routed.
What PSU are you working with? You might need to flip it 180 in that case.
That's one of the Corsair Hydro 120mm CPU coolers?
Won't be a problem with the PSU fan and ventilation:
I bought this pc from ibuypower last year, the cooler has no name on it. The PSU is standard xion 700w psu i found it on my paper order which it actually says 700w *** i always thought it was a 750
I cant find powersupply information on my device manager?
Does that XION also have a model #. Some of those budget PSU use PEAK wattage instead of Continuous wattage ratings.
True, Device Manager can't spy on the PSU hardware. Check the PSU label for anything like a model #.
Does the cpu coolers use alot of watts? its 120cc cant tell u anything more paper is in bad shape heheh
I like those newer psu that have the individual cords and slots, which make it easier for newcomers and alot more cord friendly/neat looking...mine is bunched and twistide together.....
I couldnt make a match on that number.
A XION 700W label as example:
It's got 46Amps of +12 power which puts it close to an premium 600W PSU.
