worried about my psu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, i just got the "Sapphire rx580 pulse" gpu and im in agony whether my psu can take it. I have a  corsair cx450m psu, ryzen 2200g cpu, and 1 8gb ddr4 ram module. All of the online psu calculators i tried say that my max load is 400w but im scared that my 450w will fail.

PSU calculators are innaccurate and you should avoid them. They overestimate a lot.

 

You will be more than fine. You can run that system on a decent 400w unit. The cx450m greylabel is a decent unit

It should work fine.

 

Kind of unrelated, but do consider throwing another 8GB stick of memory in there, to run them in dual-channel. You're losing out on quite a hefty bit of performance this way.

Thats not gonna do more than like 200w. Perhaps around 220-240 full load.

 

If i remember correctly and my math checks out. This is after PSU losses mind you. As in what the PSU outputs.

You might want to say away from overclocking though. (CPU and GPU) Due to the increase in power consumption, but else you are fine.
