Is my PSU going to put out enough power?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I am getting myself a GTI 1070 and it requires 8 pins but my PSU doesnt have 8 pins, so I will just get a 6 to 8pin adapter, googled around a bit and people find that working for them

Now the thing that I am worried about is my PSU going to output enough power or should I try getting a new one?

 

These are my specs:

 

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600

Motherboard: B450M PRO-M2

PSU: LC500H-12 V2.2

Ram: 8gigs, but I was thinking of adding 8 more at some point

there is always risk when using adapters so be careful. The gtx 1070 requires 150w of power so you should be fine with 500w.

will it work? probably.. should you do it? probably not..

 

get something like a corsair CX series to replace it, even 450w is enough but you need an actually decent unit, good units at 450w will have usually at least an 8 pin connector.

 

get a unit at least Tier B and above

In case everyone didn't want to Google it... That's effectively a 350W PSU....

Also.. NO safety certifications.. except for "CE" which is a self certification.

Thanks for quick answers.

So yeah I think I will just get a new PSU, its been some time since I got this one and after everything you guys said I am actually scared to even plug in 1070 to this PSU. I have a feeling it would set my whole house on fire:D

Even better, that "CE" simply certifies it as made in China. So you know you have an authentically Chinese power supply.

Uh.... Are you confusing Conformité Européenne with China Export...?

There is a legit "CE" that doesn't stand for "China Export" you know:  https://support.ce-check.eu/hc/en-us/articles/360008642600-How-To-Distinguish-A-Real-CE-Mark-From-A-Fake-Chinese-Export-Mark

 

But, like I said, even if it is a legit Conformitè Europëenne Mark (CE Mark), it's a self certification.  It's not like TÜV or UL where they actually have to certify the product.

This is not the legit one though. You can tell from the spacing.

Spacing on this one is China Export, not actual CE

Can you please look at the link I provided above?

I'm well aware of the existence of the European CE. Not sure what your point here is when the CE mark shown in the PSU photo is clearly not the Conformité Européenne mark, as can be seen from the spacing (as shown in your link, I might add).

 

Bottom right is the zoomed in CE mark from the PSU photo above.

Oh.. You're well aware.  

 

And that's what we were supposed to extrapolate from your post?

 

Clever you.

There was nothing to extrapolate.
