Corsair cx 450m enough for msi 2060 ventus xs?

Wait? a 2060Super system consumes up to 333watts during stress (measured at wall socket, therefore, actually ~10% less than that.), WITH a 9900k CPU OC-d to all-core 5.0Ghz.

 

With a 2060, it will be less, with a 1200 it will be significantly less. 450w is fine. 450w is kind of plenty nowadays, and, you can still undervolt the card slightly (5-6%), which would also decrease temperatures and keep power consumption down by a few watts..

Today I ordered a msi 2060 , I am currently rocking a r3 1200 @3.8ghz and a 1050 ti with a corsair cx 450m 80+ bronze psu. My question is if my psu could do a r5 2600 (I plan on upgrading my cpu next, 65w as well) and the newly aquired 2060?

the recommended PSU for a 2060 is 500W. and that 65W on the CPU is actually the thermals.


Im with the mentaility of "IF IM NOT SURE IF ITS ENOUGH COOLING, GO OVERKILL"

 

PS: i cooled a Ryzen 5 3600(65W) with ID cooling SE207 (200W-250W tdp lol)

It could, its close, but if you do not overclock it would be fine.

Yes as long as you don't have too much RGB.

You could run a 2080s+3700x with a 450w PSU it would reach the limit though :) 

 

 

Estimated wattage of 339W for a standard build.

providing it has the connectors, it should be fine. 

 

only be aware that the PSU is likely to whine

Yes, that won't be an issue.

The RTX 2060 sticks to around 165-175W at stock. Ryzen 2600 will probably peak at 75W draw or so. Total system consumption should be under 300W.

You can ignore the recommended wattage from graphics card manufacturers, they're worthless.
Likewise AMD's TDP rating is worthless as well. Does not mean thermals. Does not mean power draw. Means whatever AMD wants it to mean to give them the number they want to stick on the spec sheet.

I am from Romania (Eastern Europe), prices are generally pretty high around here, a 2060 usually goes for 400-450 usd. I got this one on sale for adound 335 usd. I would have liked a better model as well, but this is the situation in my country.

How are the prices on the 2nd hand market? :) Though 2nd hand cards are ridiculously expensive here, sometimes costing more than new ones..

 

 

Off:I think most people are familiar with Romania. Hi-fi scenario: Byzantine empire did not decline, maintained control and influence over the balkans. Today, Romanian would be a language with latin origin& load of greek loanwords and influences. Just like Aromanian. Would be awesome, a hybrid of the two classic european tongues..
