RX 570 PSU compatibility?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I bought a used RX 570 from a guy, and he genuinely didnt want me to mess the card up so he asked what power supply i had. I answered I had a Xilence 500W. And he was pretty reluctant to let me use the card with that PSU. Now I dont remember if the PSU had 6+2 pin, but even if it doesnt, would I be ok with a molex to 6+2 pin adapter? Would I not short out or screw up the card?

Don't use adapters. If your PSU doesn't have the right cabling, it's probably too shit to handle anything beefy.

 

I'd get a name brand PSU with good reviews, like the Bitfenix Whisper Gold 450w, Seasonic Focus series, Cooler Master V-series, Corsair TXM etc.

That power supply is a fire cracker imo. Get a Corsair CX450 and have peace of mind that your system won't combust.

Ouch. That's a pretty major disaster for Seasonic.

I had picked up on the instability with early units but figured the current units were okay again. Guess not.
