Can 1070 rock on 550W?

Recommended Posts

Easily. Although that is one expensive 550W unit.


'Fanboyism is stupid' - someone on this forum.

Be nice to each other boys and girls. And don't cheap out on a power supply.

No problem. It will probably draw closer to 300W but the most effective range is about 50-70% depending on powersupply and 110/230V

I would actually bump up to a 1080 instead of a 1070.


Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious

Easily, but why pay so much for it!?!

you can get a quality 550W unit for $50

also, why 32GB of RAM?

and why an i7.

Ryzen + GTX 1080 would be a better gaming combo, and would be cheaper.

Let's switch up your specs here. No reason to get a locked i7 in this day and age. I also highly doubt you need more than 16 GB of RAM and if you do, you want more than a quad core chip.

Yeah.

Don't know why people tell that you need more than 400W for a decent Desktop/Mobile system with a normal mid range to high end graphics card.

Yeah, but also one of the quietest under every circumstance.

And also has usually more cables than the modular PCB has connectors.

And other stuff (like the additional fan connectors)...

No, you can not.

Every 550W for 50$ is just the bare minimum, nothing to write home about.

 

We are talking about an 80plus Platinum unit with one of the best fans you can get. And that's what you are (partially) paying for: The fan of the dark power pro. That's one of the reason why it's so expansive.

With that I agree.

Makes no sense to buy a 4 Core for 300 Bucks these days.

For 150€, you might eventually think about it. But the time of glorified quad cores is over, thanks to the consoles, the games will be optimized for more than 4 cores...

 

So either get a ryzen or wait another month or so.

Something like the Seasonic M12II is a damn good PSU for the price, and while it doesn't come with the ultra super Xtreme fans, you could literally afford three M12II PSUs for the price of one of those bequiet ones.

 

if you want the platinum efficiency with a better fan, then this one is good and half the price:

I'm not saying that this one is better than the bequiet, but diminishing returns is definitely a thing here. paying double for something that you might never notice is pretty dumb.

You are comparing something that is equivalents to a 2000 Mazda 323 with something that is like a 2017 Mercedes A class. Of course it costs more, but that's because it is one of the best in its class.

 

Anyway, why recommend the 2000 Mazda 323 (Seasonic M12II) when you can get a much newer, much nicer 2017 Hyundai i30 (Corsair CX and CX-M, or BeQuiet! Pure Power 10) for about the same price?

 

(Ignore the fact that I don't know much about cars, and *hopefully* a 17 year old car doesn't cost as much as a similar range car (for the time) about a decade later)

Oh dear..

If you don't know anything about PSU, it's best to not do as if you do.

What you are saying here is just plain wrong and I'm a lack of words...

 

It's just the worst thing I've ever read about PSU...

 

Comparing an ancient, group regulated, rather loud PSU with a modern independently regulated, rather quiet PSU is just outrageous...

And no, the M12II is NOT a "damn good" PSU, quite the opposite...

Why do you do that?!

It would be nice if you would stop saying things that are just plain wrong.

 

There is just nothing on the market that uses a fan that's better than a Silentwings FDB fan...

Also there is the fan controller for 4 additional case fans the Dark Power Pro has. 

 

If someone wants a rather quiet PSU the Dark Power Pro P11 is a good choice...

Why do you do that

Apparently I was wrong about the M12II. Pretend I said CXM Lineup instead.

I didn't say that. You might have misread.

I said better fan than the CX PSUs (which have sleeve bearing fans)

not saying that the PP11 is bad. it's amazing, but it's just too expensive when you can get a cheaper unit that's almost as good for much less money.

Doesn't make it much better.

The difference in that area is huge, especially when talking about the fan.

And that's the biggest difference.

 

We are talking about a standard sleeve bearing fan at (maybe??) 900rpm at idle. The DPP P11 fan spins much much lower than that. 

And is of way better quality!

It's one of the best, if not the best fan you can find in a PSU. 

 

So to say that a low end/budget unit is (roughly) equal is just outrageous and just wrong.

 

So why not let him get one of the best PSU on the market instead?!
No reason for that...
