Ok thanks, Is the Corsair RMx series any good or the Fractal Design Interga M series? I plan to do some overclocking too, thanks

I don't have any experience with the Interga M's, but as far as I can see now it's tier 3, bronze, so it should be fine, but the rmx is much better. 550 watt is more than enough here

Hi, I am planning on building a new pc, which includes:

 

Ryzen 5 2600x

16gb 3200

2x 7.2k hdd

1x ssd (sata)

gtx 1070 ti

 

My question is: Can I use a Corsair VS650 (80 Plus) with this system and be fine? Is that a risky move? I already have the power supply and it has worked great on my Ryzen 3 build and had no issues. Thanks

 

it has 80+ efficiency and 54A on the 12v line.

You should probably get a better quality unit, the VS line of PSU's aren't that great in terms of quality.

yes, any other questions?

 

okay, serious now... the vs is a really low quality unit that's meant for absolute basic systems and not for anything higher end than a work only pc, I would highly recommend replacing it with something higher quality

That's one of Corsair's low end PSUs, I'm not going to recommend it. 

 

I suggest you get something better like a RM650x, since it's much more quiet and a better quality power supply.

I have looked into it and it seems great. It can handle overclocking too with no issues right? Ty

Yep. I've used RMx series PSUs in the past several times, and they have little voltage ripple (good for OCing) and they're pretty quiet.

I don't have any experience with the Interga M's, but as far as I can see now it's tier 3, bronze, so it should be fine, but the rmx is much better. 550 watt is more than enough here
