    Teapo SC's are  fine.  I'd rather have Elite's, but Teapo SCs are fine.
     
    Too many armchair engineers out there.

    But.. but... It's Seasonic!  Seasonic is tier 1!  Only the bestest!  They make all of Corsair's PSUs!!!

    MrBrightSyde reacted to seon123 in How many watts do I need? 2.0 (Intel 10/Nvidia 3000 series update)   
    That would depend entirely on which PSU it is. There is more to a PSU than just the wattage

    You know...you could just use the spreadsheet, which is updated way more often as more info and reviews are put out. You would know that the Legion Gold HX is already on there and is Tier B low priority. It's low priority since there are no professional reviews on it currently

    If you're going to overclock your CPU to 5Ghz, and have a 3080 you're definitely gonna need a better power supply.

    They still use the SSR-FM (SSR-FX for the GX) for the model even though the GM has most of the issues fixed.

    Oh god... not the Aerocool Integrator again?  I bought one of these for fun and found every single aspect of it is complete garbage.  Just don't.

    MrBrightSyde got a reaction from HadHaw in New PSU - Help select   
    *laughs in Gigabyte P-GM, EVGA N1/N2, and Cooler Master Elite*
     
    Anyways @HadHaw, the TX650M is a great choice for the price. As long as GPUs don't jump in power consumption like they did this with the RTX 3000 series, 650w should be enough for mid-range cards for a while.
    If you want a 750w for future-proofing, the BitFenix Formula Gold, Corsair RM, and the Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro are some of the choices you have, along with the 750w TXM

    MrBrightSyde reacted to flibberdipper in Corsair TX750w fan replacement   
    If you try running a normal 3 or 4 pin fan of the PSU there are a couple problems there.
     
    1. Obviously the plug won't fit unless you de-pin it and use the connector from the stock fan (or do the even more questionable method of pulling the housing off the PSU's board)
    2. In the case of a PWM fan, it might not like changing speed based off DC instead of PWM (I have a few Corsair fans that shriek like banshees if you try DC controlling them)
    3. A standard case fan will leave a good bit extra wire inside the PSU if you end up plugging it straight in
     
    Something else I like is just being able to control the speed myself. If my room is hot, I could just ramp the fan up. Or if I'm drawing more power than usual for whatever reason, I could ramp it up more.
    Good lord. Just because a PSU is old doesn't mean it's automatically going to go haywire and kill your family. I've got PSUs that are well into their 20's that I trust more than my 6 year old EVGA unit.

    I have a GF1 myself and it has been very quiet, so I can recommend it noise-wise. Either one would work in terms of quality, but if you don't care about the ARGB, I would get which ever is cheaper

    MrBrightSyde got a reaction from Niswendel in ASIC machine profitability?   
    This is wrong. Cost of electricity is like 12 cents USD in most US states, though there are a few states with really high electric costs. Using 150w as the power used (using my 2080 as an example), it costs about 50 cents a day. I earn 5 dollars a day on average (after fees) mining ETH using the 2miners pool. My 2080 still has 2 years of warranty, and I only need to mine on it for about 4 and a half months to make back what I paid for it ($620 used).
     
    Unless ETH crashs in 4 months (highly doubt it), mining it would be very profitable, and there is low/no chance of really screwing up your GPU since you usually set a power limit that keeps it lower than 70c with fans running at 50%, with only a memory overclock.  Also "lower resale value" is not applicable when you have already mined on it long enough to pay back the card price. Any resale value at that point would be pure profit.

    If the miner used gives you proper control you can do what ever you want. I’d just make sure the psu is capable of running the two cards with one at reduced power, one card at full and the cpu being utilized. As that’s how it would be while gaming and mining simultaneously.

    MrBrightSyde reacted to Enderman in ASIC machine profitability?   
    When you take into account the cost of electricity and the cost of depreciation and degradation of the components, and the lower resale value or eventual failure, you lose money.

    No.  No they don't.
     
    Seasonic only makes the Corsair AX Series and EVGA's long discontinued GS Series.  Please get your facts straight.
    The modular PCB is a f'd up design and they should have never attempted to do it without having a full R&D And PE team (which they don't).
     
    You're better off with a quality PSU and a splitter if you want to run two boards with one PSU.

    If you're misinformed, and people take time to explain things to you, and your response is "I don't give a shit" then people will rapidly conclude it's a waste of time talking to you.
     
    You can keep on being ignorant and angry. It isn't going to put a new GPU in your system or anybody else's.
