    650w enough?

    Hello, I'm starting to get all my parts ordered at the moment. So far I've managed to grab
    Mobo: B550 MSI Tommohawk WiFi
    CPU: Ryzen 5600x
    GPU: Nvidia 3060ti Fe

    Will be getting:
    Nvme: 1TB Sabrent Rocket
    HDD: 4TB Barracuda
    Memory: 32GB 3600mhz cl16
    AI: MSI Mag Core Liquid 240
    Fans: 6 including 2 on AIO

    Was thinking of getting the Corsair RM650 is this sufficient enough for the build?

    Thanks!

    I think you can just about do it with 650W, but it is getting close.

    TDP of 3060Ti is 200W, 5600X is 88W, that leaves a fair bit for the motherboard and components, I personally like more headroom.

    There's various tools that can check this for you - that's what anyone here would be doing, assuming they're not guessing (my guess: yes, fine, but I don't know ryzen demands too well so maybe you should get yourself more headroom).

    I like uk.pcpartpicker.com.

    It should be more than enough IMHO. The Hexus test system with a Ryzen 9 3950X and an RTX3060TI was under 350W at a wall.

    Recommended is 600W, but I would prefer to have a 100w extra for breathability

    Hey!

    I don't know if this helps, but I ran a near-identical system to this and it was faultless:


    650 EVGA SUPERNOVA GM (SFX, gold, 650W PSU)
    Ryzen 5600x
    3060Ti Fe
    Gigabyte B550i + 2x16Gb Crucial 3200mhz

    (This is paired with a fan controller, a kraken X61, 4 internal fans, 3 SATA SSDs, 1 NVME M.2 SSS, an internal USB hub, and 1 RGB strip).

    I have also tried this with a 3080fe, which I literally just got, and can confirm it EVEN works with that, granted with some PSU coil whine requiring undervolting.

    TL/DR: as above people have said too, this is safe, but I would say this is absolutely fine, and there's no need to go higher for this system!
