It's in the tier list as a tier 1, why are you asking?

The RM550x would be a cheaper and still plenty good choice. 


I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + ML120 + NF-F12

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710

Logitech G502/G303

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of me. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Just edited it.. Corsair RM650i

Looks to be tier 3, still pretty solid I'd say.

i have one of those, it's great. it's been working now for 4 months without any issues. however, the OP wants to use a 1070... isn't 550W a little weak for that?

Placing similar components into pcpartpicker, it shows as only using ~350w and even that's probably generous. 550w would be more than enough.

oh okay. i was expecting the OP to overclock his components however, and then it's a little risky..

Even extreme overclocking probably wouldn't use more than 50w extra.

really? okay.. i only have experience with overclocking systems from 2008-2010.. so i guess the newer components are way more efficient in comparison then. because my Core 2 Quad rig that went from 2.8 to 3.7ghz burned out a 500W psu...

A GTX 1070 uses up to 150-175 watts, a Ryzen 6 1600 maybe 80-100 watts overclocked  ....so yeah 550w is more than enough. His system won't go over 300-350 watts in power consumption.

 

@firelighter487 modern power supplies can actually provide almost all of those 500-550w on 12v from where the cpu and video card are fed from.  You probably had a power supply with a fake label, or an older design 500w that could only output 300w or so on 12v, leaving the rest up to 500w for 3.3v and 5v which are simply less used in modern computers.

That's bizarre. I'd say it died from either too much voltage being needed for that overclock, or it was a faulty PSU to begin with and it didn't like the overclock.

How many topics have you made? Is this two or three now?

 

Anyways, the RM550x would be plenty, the 650i is unnecessary.

Unless you want the monitoring feature and the ability to turn the fan on.

I meant wattage-wise but sure, those are cool things if you like them.

Yes

 

The X has a rifle bearing fan and no user control about any functions of the PSU. The RMi has many within Corsair Link and has an FDB fan.

Then the RMi is good for you then.
