Is 850w Plenty for Threadripper?

My new build so far..

 

Threadripper 1920x

ASrock taichi x399

EVGA RTX 2060 SC Ultra (No plans to SLi)

32gb of trident z ram

And most likely to be water cooled

 

Im at a PSU stalemate...

Should 850w due the trick?

 

Also. This rig is pretty much overkill for my needs. So I don’t see too much over-clocking happening.

First gen threadripper is a strange choice these days, unless you're getting a killer deal on that motherboard.

 

Yes 850 watts is plenty.

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 G2 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 threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

(just fyi, the 2060 doesn't have SLI compatibility, in the 20 series its only the 2080/2080 Ti)

 

What are you using the build for? 850w is fine but if you're gaming I'd spend less on the CPU and mobo and get a beefier GPU. Maybe a R7 3700x or R5 3600, with an X570 mobo, and a RTX 2070 Super or 2080?

you can use this link to calculate your PSU needs.

 

TL;DR 850w is plenty

With that set-up, even a 650W would be plenty.

 

I don't understand the reason for a ThreadRipper build, and 1st generation chip at that.

The combination of a RTX 2060, and the 1920X, with no plans to SLI (cannot SLI a RTX 2060 anyways) seems weird.

The socket AM4 platform seems more suitable than TR4.

If you need 12-cores / 24-threads, there is the Ryzen 3900X.

Even so, if you don't need all those cores and threads, it is just a waste.

 

IMO, you don't just buy a ThreadRipper or Epyc system just for "why the hell not".

Do you already have the hardware? I've got a 1950X for sale...

 

should be fine, you only need 1 8 pin connector to boot up anyways

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I already have the hardware. This build is more about aesthetic. Paying homage to a fading chipset. Not trying to reinvent the wheel. But still hold its own.

 

 

 

Three cheers for the loser generation!

If that's the situation, then might as well put the system together.

You could sell the X399 motherboard and CPU, but...

 

You can definitely overclock the 1920X, see if you can bring the CPU frequency up into the 3.8 ~ 4.x GHz range.

A decent 280mm or 360mm AIO that is ThreadRipper compatible would do.

 

What are you going to use the system for?

If mainly for common day-to-day tasks, and gaming, you can tweak the CPU so it is more optimized for that.
