Opinions for psu for my NAS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My Nas specs are:

Asrock e3c232d21 mobo

16gb (2 sticks) ecc ddr4 ram

g4400 cpu

6x wd red 3tb

 

I currently use the corsair sf600 psu. Its totally overkill but I have it because my friend didnt need it and gave me a good deal.

 

I recently got the silverstone sfx st30sf.

Im confident 300w will easily power it, but any opinions there?

I may change my cpu in the future to a xeon (e3 1230v5) but 300w would still be alright, right?

 

Also any noticeable difference money wise with the difference in efficiency?

if your electricity bills are high, go for the highest efficency PSU from a known brand (seasonic for exemple). And 500W will be plenty even for the xeon. I wouldnt go xeon for personnal nas since the TDP is higher than mid range cpu !

No.

 

Keep the much better SF600.


|PSU Tier ListPSU Whitelist / 80 Plus Efficiency| I like Power Supplies for whatever reason. Feel free to PM me with any questions. TL;DR: EVGA GS/G3/G2/GQ/B2, Seasonic Focus PLUS or G-series, Cooler Master V-series, XFX/Seasonic anything bar the XFX XT, and the Corsair RMi/RMx.
