    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    Even though I don't need that much power, in the new PC I am building I am going to use an Enermax Platimax 1350W CrossFireX - got it at a closing down clearance sale brand new but over 50% off ($100) - so why not use it? :-)
    Going to add a custom water cooling setup with lots of fans and a couple of radiators.
    I intend to have my first go at a little overclocking of both the CPU and GPU to see how that works out.
    Hoping all this will help so I can reduce the noise levels when normally using the PC as the case will sit right next to me on the desk.

    Supernova Gold 550W and no, I don't envisage replacing it, single GPU and more efficient CPUs are coming.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    Seagate 1300W Platinum and no I don't think I'll be upgrading anytime soon.

    It is already overkill for my system (7600K, RTX 2080 etc) and . The only reason I have it is it was an RMA replacement for a lesser PSU and the amount I would have got for it 2nd hand was about the same as a decent lower wattage PSU was new, so I just kept it.

    Corsair RM1000I powering a i7-5820K,SAPPHIRE NITRO R9 390X Tri-X and 5 HDD's. As I have no way of knowing how much each part uses,power wise,I like to play safe and go big.So far,so good.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    Quite surprising how many people have ridiculously oversized PSUs in their rig. Some of the PSUs listed could easily power the builds they're in 2-3x in parallel at full bore with no issues and still have headroom.
    Efficiency is clearly not something those folks with 800-1200+w PSUs in single CPU + single GPU systems care about...

    Dunno, I have a 750W PSU but it's most effcient between roughly 20% and 70% load (maximum efficiency at 50%). If I had a smaller PSU that just covered the power requirement it wouldn't be as efficient.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    I'm still using my trusty old OCZ Z-Series 1000W that I purchased way back in 2010, however I intend to upgrade to something more efficient very soon.

    Depends when and where you shop. At the time, mine was notably cheaper than PSUs half the size!

    Like I have to tell the wife - It's not like they're actually using 1200w all the time, ya know... just that they can if I connect enough stuff to them!!

    Is it surprising though? Marketing does a decent job at selling unnecessarily high wattage power supplies (a bigger number must be better etc etc). I fully admit that my PSU is overkill for my current system but it wasn't for the system that came before it. I'm also safe in the knowledge that should I want to upgrade in the future (*cough* Cyberpunk 2077 */cough*) to extremely high end GPUs I wouldn't have to upgrade my PSU and still have plenty of headroom for overclocking.

    Also it seems like actual power "efficiency" is something you don't understand as most PSUs are most efficient around 50% load. Sure financially it doesn't make a lot of sense to spend a huge amount more just to make reasonably small savings on power but for me at least its less about money and more about noise, heat and the environment.

    Literally the same reason as me for upgrading when the time comes. I am soon to post my final mods to my pc case for 2077 (Blew up the cold cathode inverter). We need a 2077 active thread when the time comes XD.

    Seasonic X900 900W. Much more than I need but it's been reliable and quiet.

    Re: QOTW: What wattage is your power supply?

    An 800w EVGA holdover from when I had twin HD7970s (I could heat a small house with that setup). Completely overkill for my current microatx 1x1070 build... It's not modular which is my only complaint and the only reason I might upgrade unless it dies or some new spec requires me to.

    I take it back. I've had a mad moment and splurged on a system upgrade so now have a AX 760 - and I'm afraid the competition won Carbide 300R is no more as well

    700w modular,for an i5 and 1060 6gb, plenty for my needs.

    It was a EVGA 750w but it failed. Still looking at what to get.
