Psu upgrade for 3070?

I have a 600w 80+ bronze psu from EVGA and was wondering if a 2600x overclocked to 4.3ghz and a 3070 at stock speeds would be too much for the power supply and if I have headroom for upgrades could I maybe go for a 3700x equivalent. I linked a image of the specs below

yeah you need a new psu 600 watt  will not work probly aim for the 750-850

You sure nvidia recommends a 650 for a 10900k and in multiple psu calculators I never go past 530w with my future upgrade

Not so sure about that one bud. That's what I would suggest for a 3080. 600w is stretching it for a 3070, but might work out.

600W are enough, but that is a low quality unit that would struggle with the high transient loads the 3070 has.

i would upgrade it with a 650W unit from tier A in the PSU Tier List to make sure it will work well.

So is this a yes would it work? I wouldnt be doing anything els and I would undervolt 3070

I would most likely be undervolting

no the br is a bad psu in genral and you should leave head room also if the card rapid ramps up it wull draw ore power then usual

it would work, but under heavy loads it might shut down. up to you whether this is acceptable. undervolting won't reduce power draw by that much, why do you want to undervolt?

Ive done it on my rx 590 and it never gets above 55c keeping it nice and quiet

Like said before the 3XXX nvidia cards have high spikey loads. 600Watts might be enough, but not if they are bad watts. ;)

Personally i would not take anything under 750W using a 3070 or higher.

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

the 3080 and 3090 have high transient spikes. 

 

but 550w will likely be enough for a 3070 (assuming you arent running a 10900k). given that you can run the 3080 on a number of 550w PSUs.

i would change that PSU for something better..........not neccesarly wattage wise, but better quality wise.

id suggest changing that PSU regardles. 

 

wattage wise its likely fine, but we dont exactly know the powerdraw of the 3070 yet.
