Enough or overkill ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is Corsair RM750i over than what I need for my PC ?

My pc is:

Intel Core I5-9600K

Asus Rog Strix Z390-H

Asus Rog Strix RTX2060 OC

Arctic Freezer 33 eSports Duo

3x Zalman Led 120mm fans (I will replace them with RGB fans someday)

No, its a good psu.

Good can still mean overkill. A good 500-550w psu like the RM550X would already be more than enough.

 

Here's an example of a system with a 6850k with the 2060 drawing 326w at load: https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/gpu_displays/asus_rog_strix_rtx_2060_review/21

and 325w with an oc'ed 8700k: https://www.bit-tech.net/reviews/asus-geforce-rtx-2060-rog-strix-oc-review/10/

Yeah, kinda overkill but there's nothing like preparing for the future. 

Don't use the f word, man.

 

What's the price difference between the 550i and the 750i?


I had a dream where Linus picked me up. It was wonderful.

I mean it's a overkill for your current build, so if you really need to save a few bucks, then go for the RMx everyone else is recommending. However, a good psu often lasts pretty long, going for a 750w psu means that you probably won't need to buy a new psu when you are upgrading your rig a few years later.

 

It's up to you.

There is no RM550i. The RMi starts at 650W.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

Its definitely overkill but if there's not much difference in the price get the bigger one, no reason not to. If the 550 is a lot cheaper stick with that
