A New psu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This may sound stupid, but do i really need a 80 plus bronze, silver, or gold. I understand that you need a 80 plus powersupply, but cant you just get a standard 80 plus psu. I am using this to add on to my old dell inspiron that I already have.

Efficiency is not a guarantee of quality. 

 

What do you need the power supply for? What country and budget?


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 - Hyper 212 Black (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

You can check out the PSU tier list to see some insight of PSU quality. I don't recommend anything below tier B.

No.  You need a good quality PSU that won't blow up your parts. 

 

80 PLUS efficiency level has nothing to do with this.
