cs850m

Recommended Posts

The only thing with lower end power supplies and high wattages is that they usually have high inrush currents - stress on the system at start, lower power delivery stability (might prove hard to overclock a CPU on whacky power delivery) and poor efficiency at higher loads.. usually 85% or so. (Bronze tier efficiency).

 

750W is enough. But make sure it's a PSU with good reviews and a midrange at worst. I usually recommend NOT skipping budget on the PSU, since it powers your shiny new components.

CS850M is fairly decent.

 

If you already have the CS850M then I would recommend just trying it and seeing how it goes. If you have problems with it switching off under load then maybe consider buying a new PSU.

The CSM is 80+ Gold and features NTC thermistor to limit inrush current. (not bad points to mention though)

Yes I have had it for a long time and never had any issues although I don't think im drawing that much power from it, 6700k and 1080 sli

I was merely informing him/her of the possible issues of budget PSUs. I don't have experience with CS850, so I'm unable to give an educated opinion on it. That's why I didn't mention the CS850 at any point.
