PSU compatibility

Recommended Posts

Corsair makes good power supplies, and 850W is more than enough power for any setup you could possibly throw at it, even a 600W PSU would work fine there.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

 

Desktop:

Intel Core i7-3820 | Corsair H100i | ASUS P9X79-LE | 16GB Patriot Viper 3 1866MHz DDR3 | MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G | 2TB WD Blue M.2 SATA SSD | 2TB Hitachi Deskstar HDD | 1TB WD Black HDD | Corsair CX750M Fractal Design Define R5 Windows 10 Pro / Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon

whats your cpu you're wanting to use or are using right now? Because you for sure don't need 850w and you might not even need 600W like @BobVonBob suggested depending on what cpu you're using.


AHAHAHHAAH (◣_◢)

You don't need a 850w psu. A good 650w one will be plenty.

 

The RTX 2070 consumes about 200-250w , the rest of your system won't consume more than around 150w, resulting in around 400w when gaming. So plenty of room up to 650w. 

 

The motherboard has an 8 pin and a 4 pin CPU connector. The 4 pin connector is optional, it doesn't have to be plugged in unless you want to do heavy overclocking.

Even a 650w psu will have more than enough connectors to handle everything in your computer.

The white version comes either 750 or 850 , i was talking about the connectors not the wattage i didn't make it clear (': 

look at the 750 version from the same link , it has two 4+4 cpu , and two pcie 6+2 is it compatible with the mobo and gpu ? cause they both use 8+6 8+4

Are you sure the 750w has 2 6+2 pcie?

I have the rm750x not in white and it comes with two cables, both with 2 6+2 pin pcie connectors.

2 4+4 I am also not sure about.. so that would just be something to double check 

 

As other said, 850 and 750 watts are probably way too much. The 4 pin eps extra is optional (the 4+4/8 pin eps already does 384w), both psus will have enough cables for even a dual gpu setup (of course bearing mind weird higher power gpu's or strange combos..).

Depends which 750W RMx model it is. Old one is only a single EPS12V connector, the 2018 is with two EPS12V connectors. I believe it's the same cables with the respective white versions.

Judging by the size of the unit and the cables it comes with, that's the 2018 White version in OPs Newegg link... Which is actually more expensive than the RM850x for some reason (at least on Newegg).

 

The RMx White starts at 750W, so if you are buying it for the white aesthetics then go for it. Either RM850x or RM750x will be fine, whichever is cheapest.

The cables on the 2018 are the same normal sleeved cables as the standard RMx, just in white, while the older one had nicer, individually sleeved braided cables. Definitely same connectors, though.
