How accurate are PSU calculators?

@Fasauceome got it!

 

I just got through the tier list. Will a B+ do me good?

yes indeed, a B+ unit is quality. Don't exclude higher tier units from your search though, you may find some higher tier units for cheap like a Btifenix formula gold.

 

even B tier units should be largely alright, my roommate uses a CX550M for his R9 fury


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:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

Excelent! Then I´ll start my search for a nicely priced one!

Can I overkill on Wattage? For example, the Corsair RM750. Or Corsair RM650x.

buying a PSU of a really high wattage doesn't have any huge drawbacks aside from the price, but if you catch one on sale it's solid. The RMX is great but the RM is outclassed by the TXM

I found the RM650x on $130 on local market.

 

The RM750 on $140.

 

I can´t even find the TXM.

 

I guess I´ll just go for the RM650X since I´m not gonna need more than that power and the RMx is better than the RM non x.
