6990 - PSU for testing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP



A quality 500w power supply, in my opinion, is not enough to daily power a Radeon 6990.


Is it enough to, at least, test this graphics card, for 1 hour?


I'm planning to test with Unigine Heaven, maybe undervolting the GPU.


And I can try to test, in a build with low power consumption.


The best PSU that i got, is a EVGA 500B, but I have Thermaltake Smart 500W too, which is not a bad PSU.


Thank you!

500W is already really tight for a system with a 6990, and neither of those two PSUs are particularly decent even.

I wouldn't try powering it with either of them personally.
