Hello

 

I'm planning to buy Be Quiet! System Power U9. But i still confused to choose between 500W and 600W. Here's my current specs and total Watt after using PSU Calculator:

A power supply calculator is pretty useless. A 500 watt power supply will handle this system just fine, and give room for upgrades, depending on what you want to add in the future.

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 G3 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 thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I’d maybe even look at a smaller PSU.  Don’t actually need to, but you could. The 550 just doesn’t use much power.  The 7 fans seems like perhaps a bit much, and there’s no cooler mentioned so I’m assuming stock cooler. 

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

For a 16 hour per day use the SP9 is pretty meh with it's sleeve bearing fan. There's nothing better available?
