Is replacing my PSU recommended?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone!


I have a question if anyone can answer please.


I have been using an FSP Raider 650W PSU for roughly 4 years.


For most of those years, I was using the following specs:


Motherboard - Asus Z170-P

CPU - Intel i7 6700k

RAM - 16GB G.Skill

GPU - Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1070


I have never had any issues.


I recently upgraded my GPU to a Palit 2080Ti Dual.


So far it still works perfectly without issues.


However, I have recently been thinking whether it would be a smart choice to change (upgrade) my PSU even though it has been working fine.


I know that PSU model is not looked upon favourably here and do not know if it is safe to keep using.


Should I replace my PSU for safety or leave it there since I have no issues.


Thanks a lot for the assistance!

Thanks a lot for the reply! ?


I bought the Corsair RM (2019) 650W. It is not the RMx but it is listed as Tier A on the tier list.
