Is a cv550w good enough?

Hi

I just bought a corsair cv550 since it was on sale but after reading reviews it seems like it might not have been a good idea. Currently I have a a12-9800 which I'm pretty sure the psu can handle but if I wanted to upgrade to a 2600 and a 1650 then would the psu be able to handle it?

Thanks

The wattage is suitable.

 

While the PSU isn't very robust, I wouldn't worry. A Ryzen 5 and a 1650 are not very demanding.

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

Yeah, get a 3600 instead though, they cost almost the same and the 3600 is better.

Hi

It will last a few years atleast correct? Atleast around 2 to 3 years. Cause I've seen some really bad reviews about it thats why I'm asking.

Again, the Ryzen 5 2600 and GTX 1650 are not super demanding components. Don't expect the CV550 to burst into flames on you.

 

However, if you are interested in a better power supply so that you can upgrade more in the future, and to give yourself peace of mind, check out the PSU tier list and grab a B tier unit at least.
