New power supply

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is there a linus video on how to replace the power supply in the computer? i have found some videos from other users on youtube but none really seem up to date? theyre all using stock walmart looking computers..
i found a video linus made with the graphics card replacement i am watching now but not a power supply replacement.. only the moduler information video 

 in case this is needed 

CORSAIR VS Series, VS650, 650 Watt, 80+ White Certified, Non-Modular Power Supply

and this is the graphic card ill be installing after i add the new card

ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Dual-Fan OC Edition VR Ready Dual HDMI DP 1.4 Gaming Graphics Card (DUAL-GTX1060-O6G)

Any "How to build a PC" video should walk you through the basics of power supply installation.

Here's a video from Bitwit queued up to power supply installation process.

Don't get a VS650. You DO NOT need 650W, a good 400W is EASILY enough.

 

Get something like a Corsair CX450 (Check your GPU only needs 1 PCIe connector if you get that), Corsair CX450M, BeQuiet PurePower 10 or 11 400W (including CM variants) instead.

i already bought it and i figured it would be good since im going to be replaceing my motherboard and getting a new cpu etc plus i have 7 fans in my case and the person who created it put abunch of LED strips etc according to the tech videos its not going to harm anything having a better watt power supply as per what linus has said

It is going to be detrimental, in the sense that you're getting a significantly worse PSU, and getting no benefit at all.

Yes. When it comes to PSUs, everyone at LMG so absolutely clueless. I'd rather take advice from my cat than from anyone at LMG.

Which model 450W do you have? Depending on what model it is, you may be better off with the Corsair VS...

the guy who built it put in logisys 400 or 450.. when i googled the gtx 1060 it shows it requires a 400 watt.. on asus website for the graphics card it says 500 so thats why i went 650 cause i was gonna change out the motherboard and cpu etc but not right now

What guys advised you above is that you don't need a 650 mediocre psu like vs but you need a 400-450 quality psu for your system. That Logisys is probably a bad unit from what i am googling, so between these two keep the VS.

Please don't go for Corsair VS series select CX series or up.VS series r not for gaming,I got random shutdown while gaming on VS550 and now its dead.It will work fine for 2 months that's it.Its not for heavy use like gaming.

I too bought it seeing reviews and ratings.🤷‍♂️

A 1060 is a 120W card and what the manufacturers is recommending is a wattage of the PSU for your whole system for a normal gaming PC, not just for the card. And they even add some extra W for to be on the safe side so not some crazy person tries to sue them.

 

I have a Watt-meter and I run a dual Xeon E5-2670-setup with 112 GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1060 and Vega 56 doing computations right now both on CPU and the 1060 and I am pulling about 500W from the wall with the monitor included. And those two CPU:s is good for 115W each under full load... Now i'm not loading all cores to 100% so say the draw about 90-100W each right now and the 1060 is drawing 95W fully loaded with this particular workload.

i went on that list and theres hardly any 500 or 550's on the c tier and the ones that are on there is around $70 to $140 besides the rosewill..

thats a pretty decent one then? id prefer the power supply be under $70 .. more likely $60- would be awesome and none mod cause i have no idea what id be doing

rosewill has some decent psus. but you should look around much lower wattagewise, i personally run a 1070 ti with a 8600k on this one, and it's 40 bucks after rebate
