Is my psu enough?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a cougar 600w psu 80+ bronze and im planing to upgrade my system from ryzen 3 1200 1050ti and msi a320 gaming motherboard to ryzen 7 2700x 1080ti or 1070ti and msi tomahawk b450 max. The question is

Is it going to handle the ryzen 7 2700x and the 1080ti or 1070ti

yes


If you judge a fish based on its ability to climb trees it will go its whole life thinking its a failure.

Power is fine, but what exact PSU is it and how old is it?  There are other considerations than just wattage.

If you want a bright fire - yes

If you want a stable computer - hell no. Get a reliable power supply such as the Corsair TXM 550W or Be Quiet Pure Power Gold 500W

fir a 1070ti, yes. for a 1080ti, the recommended is 650w

Do you two honestly believe the Cougar that cannot even deliver rated power can actually and SAFELY power a 2700X and 1070 Ti? Seriously?.... It's going to pop like a fire cracker with cheap chinese capacitor shrapnel.

Cougar has 3 80+ Bronze rated 600W PSUs. The CMD, VTX, and VTE. Which one is it?

 

Interesting that some people have said that it's bad, or that it's fine, without knowing which of the 3 it is. At least that makes it easier to spot who's talking out of their asses, and should not be trusted :3

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

Cougar makes some good and some bad units.

 

Really depends on the model.

I'd recommend switching it out. What's your budget for your PSU?


|| CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x @ 4.2GHz 1.4v || CPU Cooling: Wraith Prism (Upgrade to 212 Black Pending) || Motherboard: B450 Tomahawk MAX || RAM: C-DIE LPX @ 3266MHz 15-17-17-20 1.45v slightly tuned subs || Storage1x MX500 500GB 1x WD Blue 1TB 5400RPM || GPU: Gaming OC 5700XT @ 2010 Core // 1800 Mem || Case: H510 Matte Black || PSU: RM550x || Monitors: 2x KG281K || Keyboard: Tecknet Wired Membrane || Mouse: Tecknet Wired Mouse || Headphones: Platinum Wireless || Mic: Inbuilt (Upgrade to Yeti Nano Pending) || Console: PS4 Pro 1TB || Phone: iPhone X || Earphones: AirPods Pro || Watch: Apple Watch Series 2

 

My words of advice:

Don't buy Cherry Browns.

Don't play Overwatch. I've hate the game yet I play it every day.

Wireless > Lighter Mice

Silence > Temps for Coolers

Get a good PSU
