  1. If OP can afford a 1080ti then I don't see why a G2 or G3 would be out of the question, yeah
  2. Should be fine, think it's a Seasonic S12 or similar.
  3. Well I'd just not SLI two 760s. You can get one better GPU and not deal with SLI issues and all that. Maybe get a used 970?
  4. Corsair's SF series is the only SFX form factor PSU worth considering. From what I gather from reviews, the 450W version is quieter.
  5. Turn speedstep off in the BIOS, problem solved.
  6. For real? The G3 is tiny for its output.
  7. EVGA G3 or GS
  8. It'd work with a GTX 1080 if you wanted it to (not that I would pair a cheap PSU like the 450B with a 1080 but you get what I mean).
  9. So, remember when I used to get 220 Mbps download and 13 up with Comcast? I think my mom yelled at a few too many people on the phone with Comcast because now we're getting 30 down, 6 up.....

      I pay £35/$44 for 120Mb/s depends where you are in the UK in all honesty.

      I have 15mb up down... Yeh.....

  10. That'll work.

    I don't recommend any particular modularity because it matters more or less to some people. I'm partial to semi-modularity because all the cables you absolutely will need to use are pinned on the far side of the PSU making it easier to route those cables into a cable management grommet on most any decent case and the other cables are modular. For a 1080ti an EVGA GS/GQ/B2/G3/G2, 550W or higher would be fine, 650W if you want more headroom for more hard drives or whatever else.
  12. Any PSU with two 8+8 pins by definition has 6+6 pins, so I'm more than certain they exist. For that system (a bizarre one I might add. Why not sell your two 760s and get one GTX 980ti used or something?) I'd recommend an EVGA 750B2.
  13. There's no reason not to use it. The fan comes on when the PSU gets hot enough to justify it running.
  14. Well your PSU is one of the best Seasonic units internally that money can buy and the Cooler Master casing on that thing is all metal so I think you'll be plenty fine. The fan might be a bit messed up at worst. If it's broken and there's still a warranty (likely, as it probably has a 7-year warranty) then send it to CM to have it repaired.
  15. Well the VS would be enough but it's a pretty bad unit. Is it possible you could get a Pentium G4560 (Hyperthreaded Pentium) for much less and with the money you saved get a GTX 1050 Ti and a better PSU like a Corsair CX450M or Seasonic S12?
