I'm getting the i5 3570k, yes overclocking. Also grabbing a GTX 670, ocing it as well. I was going to grab a 750 corsair psu, but I was thinking I want to upgrade to SLI 670 near future. What PSU would I need for sli 60 and 3570k both over clocked? Thanks guys!
Asus sabertooth z77
8Gb 4x2 g skill sniper at 1866
Bly ray burner
7200 rpm 500GB HDD
The calculators will say 750 watts but if it's me, going for the highest possible OC's, I'd want a jonnyguru 10.0 performance rated PSU of 850 watts ...... it's not just about having enough power, it's about having stable voltages and low ripple to make ya highest OC's stable.
If not going for the highest OC's, you could get by with a Corsair TX750 or XFX Core Edition 750.
And if ya getting a 670, I'd wanna get one that's been designed for the highest OC's.
That makes the Asus 7% faster outta the box than the EVGA SC, 6C cooler and almost 1/4 as loud under load (every 3 dBA is a doubling of sound level). The FTW is slightly faster than the SC, leaving the Asus model w/ a 5% performance advantage
Go to this link and find the actual specs of the PSU before you buy. You will be astonished, some high end brands selling psu of 750w, eventually supplies only 650w (just example)... this website has detail results of each psu by most of the manufacturers, along with product code and year of production.
You need to tell the truth and stop lying all the time.
Is there a better PSU I can get? I MIGHT run Crossfire on the 7950 in the future. If it is worth getting, and please explain to me if it is and why, should I get a GOLD rated PSU?
Is the PSU in this wishlist good?
EDIT: I do plan to SLI/Crossfire the 580 (Fermi)/7970 (when I get it) in the future and I will OC to about 4.5 GHz.
i have bought an amd radeon hd 7750 , but i haven't installed it yet becuz i am afraid of my psu, i have a 450w power supply so can i run this graphics card on it?if not then tell me which one shud i buy ( tell me any cheapest one but which can run it smoothly) if my own psu will be able to run it then it will be great
my pc's info. is
pentium D ,dual core, 3.00 GHZ
Is there any possibilities of Motherboard, Processor getting damaged if any problem faced with the PSU to my graphic card?
These are all recent quotes by you from the links above where your asking what power supply you should use.
By the way, your future possibilities are endless. lol
GeForce GTX 670 2x SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 700 Watt power supply unit as minimum.
Remember, if you are going to overclock the GPUs or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina. The minute you touch voltages on the CPU or GPUs, the power draw can rise real fast and extensively.
Note these important words Akeem40.
This is not AVERAGE, it's highly overclocked, GPU's AND CPU.
Minimum means the very least they would recommend IF it was an AVERAGE SYSTEM, and NOT overclocking ANYTHING.
