[CPU, PSU] Help please Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: November 8, 2012 12:21 PM in Components Share sakura125 November 8, 2012 12:09:11 PM I'm trying to build my system unit w/ these hardwares: Proc: i5 3470 Mobo: GA-Z77M-D3H VGA: Sapphire HD 6870 RAM: Gskill Sniper 2x4gb PSU: Aerocool Strike-X 500w will my PSU handle it? I'm not planning on Xfire and OCing each hardware. I'm in the Philippines and we don't have that much good brands here. More about : cpu psu blazorthon a b ) Power supply November 8, 2012 12:16:27 PM Why bother with a 6870? The reference 7770 is nipping on its heels with current drivers and some of the highly factory overclocked 7770s can meet or beat the 6870 with ease while using less power and usually being cheaper too. Aerocool is not recommended for PSUs. http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx Out of six tiers with lower numbers being the best, AeroCool is placed in the fourth tier. Are you sure that is the best quality model that you can get? It's rated power delivery is high enough, but I'm not sure if it can meet its rated power delivery. rene13cross November 8, 2012 12:21:04 PM ^^This. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
