Using a 700W for a Asus Vega 56

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello peeps, hope everyone doing all right during corona time.

 

I bought yesterday a Asus Strix Vega 56 and it has a 8+8 Pin power connector so my unbranded chinese psu is out of the question. Unfortunately PSU here in my country are expensive and only good price i could find was for a 700W Red Dragon semi modular Bronze certified. Now ive read that the vega 56 needs minimum a 500W PSU but the asus official website says Recommended is 750W.

 

What does this mean? Can the PC turn on with the PSU knowing its less than the recommended Wattage? Will that break any component beside the PSU (mobo,cpu,gpu,ram blabla)? Should i go for a 750/800W?

 

Thanks alot peeps

A good PSU costs about 100 €/$/£ why not pay that for years to come?

your absolutely right but not to get into politics and stuff theres a whole crisis in lebanon and i just bought the vega yesterday and a 6600k so im really really short i never expected to buy a PSU

 

And i even wanted a 1000W gold but the prices are wayyy to expensive like its the price of a 7700k when there was no crisis XD

If you want something that is decent but not too expensive ( I don't know the prices in Lebanon but I don't expect it to be double the price)  a cx650 will be way more the enough and should serve you for a good 3-4 years 

Idk what oem  red dragon used for their PSU but I don't expect it to be any good quality 

 


My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying

assuming that PSU can actually do 700W you'll be fine.

Ah, you mean - does the somewhat not very known 700W PSU would power the system? Most likely it will, but yeah it's a temporary option i'd suggest.


... but I'm no expert

me: *looks up the tdp of the vega 56*

 

also me: "oh ok"

 

the gpu alone can use 300w but thats when its not overclocked. 

 

i recommend a 600w, since gpu's arent ever going to use much more than 300w

All right thanks everyoneeee for very fast answer I will buy the 700W but the guy told me i can always give it back and upgrade. I was just scared because Asus recommended a 750W and im using a 700W 

Hopefully nothing breaks and i can enjoy my new build

 

Stay safe people

These wattage estimations are always never right

asus has just been like that.

 

heres an example, so there are two different reference gpu's gpu a, and gpu b. lets say ones asus and ones powercolor

 

gpu b. uses 150w but even know the two cards have the same performance gpu a. uses 200w

Here is a huge problem:

 

The Vega graphics cards are known for very brutal transient power draw, so under load, they spike up. No matter what the wattage of your power supply is, if it is crappy and can't handle the transient load, it will crash and/or shut down the PC.

 

You really can't put Vega on any old PSU.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

asus: "the gtx 690 uses 385w."

 

 

The 690 is notorious for how inefficient it is 

But still that is not how much it draws power

its only so inefficient because they literally just smashed two gpu's into one gpu lol

Edited by GoodEnough

Absolutely right but at the time I had a 7400 and was playing game with a 1060 and was happy but i recently started unreal engine and playing more demanding games so time for a small upgrade

Don't worry 

These companies WAY over estimate the wattage estimations 

But when using this PSU 

Please don't try to over clock this GPU what so ever 

Vega in known for being unstable some of the times and being really inconsistent with it's power draw
