750W for a mid range pc?

rnhbs
 Share

I bought a 750W power supply for my mid range PC which consists of a Ryzen 5 2600, Rx570 4GB, 8GB RAM kit & 5 case fans and i was wondering is it an overkill??

p.s. i bought it because I wanted to save the hassle of upgrading psu for future upgrades later on.

Yes, way overkill for wattage. If you want to reuse the PSU for upgrades, you'd likely be better off getting a similarly priced, lower wattage and higher end PSU.

way overkill, and also I'm worried that you bought a low quality one

You can check the recommended wattage for your build on a few websites online, I like to user PCPartpicker.

 

Also, don't (ever) go cheap on your PSU, if it dies, it may take some components down with it.

75% of what I say is sarcastic

 

So is the rest probably

You would've been better off getting a lower wattage but better quality power supply. Is it fully modular? What efficiency rating is it?

Way overkill, however there are some benefits to getting a super overkill PSU (i.e. semi-fanless mode, on the RM1000x and RM1000i the fan doesn't spin until about 600W).

Please do specify the PSU model however

Is a Cooler Master one considered low quality?

Not that good.

I'd suggest a RM650i (if you want Corsair Link), RM550x (if you don't want Corsair Link) or TX550M Gold (if you have no money at all).

450-550W. 450W for up to a 2070/1080, 550W for up to a 2080 Ti. The more important thing is to get a good PSU. If you want a quiet PSU, get a quiet PSU, not a silly high wattage one.

Is 550W enough headspace for future upgrades tho? Im thinking of a 1080ti in upcoming years

not low quality, but a lower wattage higher quality unit would be more beneficial. No need to change anything since you already have the PSU

1080ti's most aggressive custom BIOS puts the power limit at 350w (and doesnt hit that unless you go liquid), while Ryzen 5 2600 at 1.4V doesnt draw more than 150w even when you put the heaviest synthetic load to them at the same time. 550w is already enough as long as you don't do that.

I see i thought i needed higher as they recommend 650W+. I guess i'll go safe with a 600W unit

Are Silverstone PSU any good? They seem to be on the cheaper end but there are some which are 80+ bronze and same wattage.

I think the Earthwatts Gold Pro is well priced in Australia. It's a Focus rebrand.
