  1. If you do not plan to OC you are likely fine with the 750W G3, also a Tier A- PSU.
  2. The GX is the updated model that does not have these issues. If you do not plan to OC you are likely fine with the 750W G3, also a Tier A- PSU.
  3. I would test it out, if the PSU is not heavily tasked the fans may barely spin up, but if you are noticing fan noise coming from the PSU often I would recommend moding the case, drill a large hole, or several small ones and put a dust filter underneath, that would solve your issue should it arise. Also, keep in mind that to check for heat coming from the PSU you can place your hand near the back of it and it would be pretty noticeable if a lot of heat is coming from it.
  4. 650W will be enough, and the RM is a quality unit. If you want to go for an all out OC on the CPU and GPU consider a 750W unit.
  5. Welcome to the forum! While you could get away with a 650W PSU the P650B is not great, to be clear it is also not terrible. Ranked as a Tier C PSU on the tier list, if it was me I would for a quality 750W Tier A PSU to play it safe. But you might be 'okay' using the PSU you have. You just have to ask yourself if you are fine with the potential risk. With sustained loads for longer periods of time it could damage other hardware in your system if you encounter voltage ripple issues etc. Considering the cost investment of your GPU it is not a terrible idea to upgrade t
  6. There have been issues with the Seasonic Focus Plus units but the Prime and new GX units are good. 750W would be more than enough for a 3070. Refer to this list: I recommend a quality Tier A unit, something like a Corsair TXm, RM, RMX often are a good buy (depending on region). Where are you located?
  7. Nvidia recommends a 750W PSU, so 850W should be fine. 1000W is playing safe especially if you are panning to OC and do a custom loop. Where are you located?
  8. Totally missed the 'M' lol. The CXm is a Tier C unit, refer to this list: I mistakenly thought you were referring to the CX. I would recommend going for a Tier B (or better) PSU for a build like yours, 550W is enough though.
  9. If you are referring to the grey label unit, then yes you are okay. If you do not already own the PSU I would recommend something like the Corsair TXm as it is a bit better quality, but the CX is not a bad PSU.
  10. Unless the PSU shroud is perforated it literally will not do anything, and even if it is, unless OP already has the fans it is a huge waste of money, they will not make any noticeable difference in temps.
  11. Pointless, even if the PSU shroud it slightly perforated, between that and the cables this will not aid airflow in any meaningful way. What case is this and how many front intake fans do you have?
  12. 550W is enough. But what is the exact model you are looking at?
