Will ma PC die?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I have a question.

My specs are:

i5-9600k

Gigabyte b360 hd3 (MB)

2x Kingston HyperX 4GB

CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo (CPU cooler)

Some HDD 1TB and 500GB

SSD 256GB

CoolerMaster MasterWatt 500 lite fully modular (PSU)

 

Will my PSU be enough for my next possible upgrade which is a Gigabyte RTX 2070 Gaming OC 8G?

Like I know I'll need a new PSU, but could I temporary use my pc with only 500W and that GPU?

The issue might be that this GPU comes pre-overclocked so it uses a great amount of power...

Hope you got a good deal on that 9600k, else it's going to waste in that B series board.

 

500 watts is certainly enough power, you can see my signature for reference. However, if you're concerned about quality, click my PSU, it links to the tier list and you can get a relative idea of how good your unit is.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

I would like to know, why would the motherboard be wasting it? Thanks for the reply :D

The 9600k is designed to be overclocked, a soldered version of the 8600k for better thermals. It's far more expensive but without overclocking it's the same as an i5 8600, non k.

Ow ok, don't worry, I got it for like 20$ less than an 8600(very much sale). But can't I overclock the 9600k with this motherboard? This is actually something very important for me to know, how and if I can.

You need a Z series board for overclocking, a Z370 (with updated BIOS) or Z390

 

Good sale buy though.

Get a Z390 Aorus board, those are some of the best. I wouldn't even get a Z370 board.


Looking for RX 570/580 equivalent or better for $200 or less!
