450 watts for an rtx 2060

Recommended Posts

You should get 500 watts and that's way more than enough for that RTX 2060.

 

I've seen people using RTX 2080s inside of a PC using a 330 watt psu.

why would you recommend a PSU that's way more than enough? If the 450 watt PSU doesn't cut it, why would a 500 watt PSU do it?

with 450 watt psu

what specific model PSU?


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 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I would get at least a 650w, no matter what other people are saying that 550w is enough

I think a 500 watt psu Because the CPU takes about 97 Watts and the GPU takes up 240 watts.

The RTX 2060 operates sub 200 watts. This PC shouldn't draw over 400 watts under max load.

that makes no sense. How is this setup going to draw anywhere near 650 watts?

Of course you are right, but he constantly keeps recommending way oversized PSU-s, and convinced, that SS is the best, the rest are lightyears behind. Kind of a delusion.

 

For the OP @supercater500450w is enough, 550w is plenty. A 2060super RIG will draw ~ 300watts under load. Less, if you undervolt (which is recommended anyways)


Life is really challenging. I don't always suceed: )

What PSU? One that can actually output 450W or one that is garbage?

yes, you did. Why? 

 Just a result of undervolting. MSI GTX1080 GamingX at stock ~ 258 watts. UV-d: 180watts.

Before:

After:

749815_297300_gpu-z_1080_2_2.jpg

 

The stock BIOS settings for this card is way too generous. I highly recommend undervolting them. Note also the 11 degree of Celsius difference in temperatures under load. Definitely recommended. The temperatures alone worth it imho.

mention a downside to undervolting.

 

i know one, but its more of a thing you test for when you do undervolt.
