Hi guys. Long time lurker, first time poster here.

I'm planning to build a new rig and am currently having some doubts and questions on what PSU to pick. Initial thoughts were aimed at Aerocool's new Templarius line, but having seen the horrid history of the brand with voltage stability, I decided not to risk it. So I'm currently considering Be Quiet!'s Pure Power L8-630W.

My questions are, would this PSU handle the following rig comfortably:

Asrock Z77 Pro4
Intel Core i5 3570K
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B 2x4Gb kit 1600Mhz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance
Asus GeForce GTX660 TI-DC2-2GD5
3x SATA 7200RPM hard-drives
DVD-RW Drive
3x 120mm and 2x80mm Zalman case fans

And how do you think this PSU will handle future CPUs/GPUs?


Thanks in advance.

Yes, it should be enough. CPU's and GPU's will probably go down in power consumption actually so it will be good for at least 3 years(unless it blows)

You'd only need at most a 500w PSU for that build, so that 630w model you picked is more than enough.
