Corsair CX650M - good or bad choice?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hej guys!

I was struggling with my PSU choice for a while now.

I'm now thinking about getting the CX650M from Corsair. Now I'd like to receive ya'll opinions as I'm not really sure if it will fit my future-planned pc build. I don't think it'll cause any problem with my current build* but I'm not sure - when I'll upgrade my GPU to an RTX 2070 or something like that, will that PSU be still a good choice?
*My current build:

  • ASRock B550 Pro4
  • 16GB Ram
  • Ryzen 5 3600
  • GTX 970 😄
  • (RGB fans & stuff is planned for the future!)

The Corsair CXm is a solid choice, even if you upgrade the GPU, 650W is a lot, you could power a 10900k and 2080Ti with a quality 650W unit.

 

 

It's a solid Tier B+ PSU.
