Could I Install a 2080 with this build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi I currently have 1060 with a single fan which is 15cm in length but am looking into buying a 2080 super (link below), my build also consists of a 67 core 3.6 gigahertz Ryzen 5 1600x, and my motherboard is a AB350-GAMING 3, width wise its fine but I'm just concerned about the length. Is there anything else I should look into before buying, and would this work.

Whether it will fit will depends on your case and PSU.

Coming from someone with a 2070 Super and Ryzen 7 1700, you probably won't be able to 'get' everything out of modern games, as the first gen Ryzen CPU's don't have the best single core performance.

What case do you have?

Hi is there a way to check with the physical case as I bought it in 2018 and can't find the receipt if it helps its made by PC Specialist.

Without knowing the case your build is in we cannot say for sure if this card will fit... that being said, your motherboard appears to be a standard ATX form factor and the blower style card you have listed will fit in the majority of ATX midtower cases, it's a two slot standard length card and is the most "standard" sized card you'll find.

can you post a picture of the front of the case and of the motherboard area after removing the side panel.

Thank you so much I will see if I can find what

yes, that card will fit. your current card takes up 2 vertical slots as the new card will and there is plenty of clearance for card length inside the case.

 

the final questions are:

 

does your power supply have enough wattage to meet the new card's needs.

 

does the power supply have PCIe power cables to match: one 8 pin connector and one six pin connector.

 

from the picture i can see that the cable currently plugged into the card is a 6+2 pin cable(so an 8 pin), so verify that you have another 6pin PCIE connector available to power the new card and you should be mostly ready to go.

You should be fine.

only concerns still being available PCIe power cables and enough PSU wattage.

How can I check if mine is good enough?

1: are the PCIe connectors you need there

 

2: checking the PSU(power supply) wattage rating that is on the information sticker found on the PSU. you may be able to find that sticker by removing the back panel of the computer which may make the PSU visible to find that sticker.

Thank you so much I'll check. if it's ok in a few minutes

PCIe connector: 6+2pin, when the 6 and 2 are combined they can be plugged into an 8 pin power connector, the 6pin without the +2 pugged in is the second connector you need, it may or may not have the additional 2pin hanging off the side.

 

in total you need 1 8pin(6+2pin works) and 1 6pin PCIe connectors available.

I'm seeing PSU recommendations for a 2080super of around 550w minimum with a recommendation of 600-650.

So if your PSU hits these marks you should be all set.

if it's under powered it may still work if it has the connectors but you risk overdrawing the PSU which could cause system shutdowns/instability or potentially trip safety features in the PSU or potentially cause it to catch fire in a rare worst case scenario.

Hi is there another normal place for it to tell me as you can't remove the back panel of mine, I'll send a picture if it helps.

Hmm, not what we're after. 
On the opposite side of the case from the side panel that you removed to photograph the motherboard is another panel. remove that "back" panel and you'll have better visibility of the PSU, the PSU information sticker might be visible with the removal of the back panel.

 

The image here shows the PSU information sticker on the side of the PSU. In this case, indicating a 650W psu along with some power rail information.

 

unfortunately unless you know the make and model of the PSU there is no other way of telling the Wattage without finding the information sticker on the PSU itself.

 

if the sticker is not visible after removing the back panel you may need to remove the 4 screws that hold the PSU in the case, these screws are visible in the two above images, with those removed the psu can be gently moved and reoriented to find a wattage indication.

The "back panel" is the side opposite of the panel you removed to see the motherboard, it must be removable because you can see the power cables that are run behind the motherboard. the back panel is not the rear of the machine where the power, usb, and video cables plug in but is instead the panel behind the motherboard.
