Crossfire on 550W?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Would it be too close to crossfire HD7850 on my 550W PSU?
Specs:

HD 7850

16gb ram

FX 6300

XFX TS550

It should be able to hand it no problem the entire system should use around 400-450W and for safety factor a 550W is good, not to mention at around the 80% load for efficiency.

 

I wouldn't overclock anything though.

OK great.

 

Yes, I ran a 8350 + HD 7850 cf on a 650 watt earthwatt.

You have a lower watt cpu, it sould work.

Great!

Looking at the numbers themselves, there shouldn't be an issue.

 

The CPU consumes around 95W (probably higher than the TDP). The GPUs consume around 150W each. Other stuff in your system shouldn't bring it over 550W.


This is your daily reminder: fuck RTX 3080 buy bots and scalpers.

JUST enough not safe though


Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

It should be enough for running those two cards without any problems, but I would personally upgrade to a 650W or higher just to be on the safe side.
