Hi everyone i currently have a 2700x 4.2ghz oc and 1070. Im getting a 2080 this month but i have a 750w evga psu atm. The problem is that the psu is modular and only has 1 8 pin cable. It runs well but its not gonna be enough for the msi 2080. So i bought a cx650m but i wanna make sure its enough for my hardware, Thanks (Sister gifted me the PSU)

Why wouldn't you buy a higher end PSU if you're getting high end hardware to begin with?
The PSU is really the last thing you should penny pinch on. Especially when we're talking a mere $30 or $40 to step up significantly.

There are many ways you could get more modular cables. Which EVGA PSU was it? Supernova? A modular PSU can always be filled up with cables.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

that's how it goes right? buy it first, and then check if it's the right thing.

 

snarky comments aside, there's something to be said about pairing a nice system with a nice power supply, but if you dont go crazy with the cpu OC it should at least suffice.. just like a lambo can drive just fine on knockoff tyres.

Ok thanks but if i let the cpu go to stock the 650w would def be fine?

It should be fine, it's just not the best unit.

Imo you're misinterpreting the PSU tier list. Tier 3 should be low-mid end, as that is what the CX/CXM is in my eyes. 

 

Also, the G1 is not high end; it's roughly on the same level as the focus+ which is mid-range. I recommend a corsair RMx 2018 650W/750W.

disagree. tier 3/c is like the good enough psu's. Would recommend the rmx too, but there are many more great choises at that pricepoint

Good enough. It's the lowest tier I would recommend for anything (tier 4 and below are mostly garbage old group regulated / bad protections PSUs).

true. so it's good enough. everything under it is old or unreliable. We're kinda making the same point here
