HELP! Backup PSU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a pretty respectable backup PC but recently its 650W 80+ gold unit went bad. Now due to the on going pandemic I don't know how long it would take to get a new unit. I had a 500W Thermaltake PSU and was wondering if that would suffice my setup.

 

My Setup is:

i7 8700K

16Gb Ripjaws 5

MSI GTX 1080

500GB SSD

1TB WD Blue

AIO Liquid Cooler

 

I have RGB fans which came with the case and the liquid cooler and no external RGB strips or controllers.

Thermaltake has PSU's ranging from good, to terrible.

Do you have a specific model number, perhaps?


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Its the TR2 S series of PSUs. The model number is TRS-0500P-2

That is not a great PSU, which I would not recommend using with high-power components such as the GTX 1080 and i7 8700.
