    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    My PC (Ryzen 7 1800X + GTX 1070) can draw around 250W from the wall on load so I specifically chose a 500W power supply for the best efficiency (this is the efficiency graph for my SX500-LG):



    My main concern was noise however, as opposed to a few percentage of extra efficiency and I chose this PSU because it's effectively silent up to 50% load:



    I've never gone above 50% load so I'm not sure how loud my PSU can get but the curve does show an exponential fan speed curve as load goes up.

    Components have been relatively stable in terms of max power draw, if not more efficient, so I didn't bother getting a higher wattage for upgrades as I can't see my future use requiring more power.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    Corsair HX850i and no need to upgrade it anytime soon. If anything, it's somewhat overkill for a system with a single GTX 1080 Ti and only 32Gb ram. But I wanted to be ready in case I ever decided to get a second GTX 1080 Ti, but that need never surfaced as a single GPU handles 1440p@165hz Gsync just fine in every game I play. Zero need for a new PSU for a very long time to come.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    EVGA 650W GS - 80+ Gold and basically silent.

    It's a bit overkill for me at the moment because I sold my graphics card - but it will be great in terms of efficiency no matter what card I put in.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    I currently run a PowerCool 950w Modular 80 plus.

    Way overkiil for what I need, but it was a bargain at the time, a good 4 years ago, and hasn't given me any trouble.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    Corsair RM850i (Overclocked i7 and two overclocked 980Tis, lots of drives, so no, not overkill). My peak usage with both cards pushing at the same time is about 700w. My idle usage on Windows upon startup is about 220-240w. Connected to 1500VA CyberPower PSW PSU. Not only not planning on upgrading, but I fully expect this 3 year old unit to last at least another 10 years through different systems. I still have 10+ year old Seasonic S550 and Corsair VX550, for test builds and other stuff I do when bored.

    I've got a high-efficiency Corsair 750W unit, don't think I'll need an upgrade.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    11 year old Seasonic S12II-430 powering the system in the specs thingy on the left.
    Regular dust removal and one (!) fan replacement is all it needed in over a decade. Still going to grab a M12II-520 Evo for my planned Ryzen upgrade later this year (mainly for cable management). Here's hoping it'll be equally reliable...

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    Still using an OCZ 600W that's about 6 years old. It seems to power my i7 8700 and 1080Ti quite happily.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    EVGA G2 1000w, because it was the best balance of price vs specs vs performance at the time.
    No idea if I really need that much, but then I also have no idea what other gubbins and RGB LED junk I may install in my rig in the future... and 1000w is about half what most of my friends have in theirs. I like to understate things, y'see!!

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    Corsair HX1000 from 2009. Still works perfectly fine, currently powering a Threadripper 1920X workstation with dual RX-Vega 64s. Been through about 3 upgrade cycles. 10 years from a PS and still going strong is absolutely awesome. It had a "80" efficiency rating back then, probably equivalent to bronze or a silver now. If I get another upgrade with it along for the ride it would be great.

    Amateur Build Crazed Nutter - from experience despite the cables never reaching in big chassis
    and no matter which way up the SATA Power are ALWAYS facing the opposite direction to required

    but prices always took me towards the Corsair PSU's

    (oh and YES thats IS 237TB on the ASUS crappy DELUXE above - onboard SATA ports NEVER worked
    no help from ASUS so 2 x 16 port RAID Cards installed and I'll NEVER buy ASUS EVER AGAIN!!!)
    The AsRock Z87 outperforms it in every respect with half the ram and with all types of work
